Greece: Stunning 'Sturgeon Moon' lights up Athens ParthenonTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The name of the moon comes from a type of freshwater fish, the Sturgeon, which was believed by Native Americans to be more abundant in the Great Lakes during the month of August. These fish are now sometimes called 'living fossils' as they have now existed for over 135 million years.

This full moon, which comes just after the Perseids meteor shower, peaked between August 11 and 13, is also commonly referred to as the Green Corn Moon or the Grain Moon, being inspired by crops that can be harvested during the month.
