The Sturgeon Moon, August full moon, rises over New York City on Sunday, August 22, 2021 at 8:02am.
In the United States, full moon names follow Indigenous traditions. This moon is called the “Sturgeon Moon” because it rises at the time when Sturgeon fish can be caught in the lakes and rivers of the Northeast.
Sturgeon are renowned for their roe (eggs). Caviar is sturgeon roe.
