The first of two August supermoons will grace the skies over Central Texas on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, with mostly clear conditions expected. NASA has identified the “Sturgeon Moon” as one of four supermoons in 2023. A supermoon occurs when the full moon aligns with its closest distance to Earth, resulting in a 7% larger and up to 30% brighter appearance.
NASA explains that the moniker “Sturgeon Moon” originates from the abundance of large fish found in the Great Lakes during this period, making them easier to catch. The Aug. 1 supermoon is known by various names, such as the Red Moon, the Corn or Green Corn Moon, the Barley Moon, the Herb Moon, the Grain Moon, and the Dog Moon.
As for the second supermoon in August, it will be the Blue Moon, gracing the skies on Aug. 30.
