Just missed catching this big redish moon sitting on the horizon, maybe next time I'll luck out, but it was beautiful to see it rise above the canola field in the foreground. The August moon is known as the sturgeon moon, green corn moon, grain moon or the red moon for the reddish hue it often takes in the summer haze.

Far out - thanks for sharing! I am not much of a night person, but I love the astronomy course I took in university. I was helping with renovations on my in-laws place this summer, so I hit the sack early! Love the information you shared a s well.
