Look Upward for the Mississippi Sturgeon Moon


by John Dolan, Our Mississippi Home

There is a special connection between the Moon and Mississippi, a relationship that is enhanced when the Moon is full. August’s Full Moon will appear on the evening of Thursday, August 11th, and will be at its peak illumination about 9:36pm. Look upwards towards the southeast after sunset and catch the Sturgeon Moon rising.
