With a mainly clear sky across West Michigan tonight, you should get a nice view of the moon. The full moon is Tuesday evening at 9:45 PM EDT. Every full moon is given a name. This one is the Full Sturgeon Moon.
According to space.com: “This large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water like Lake Champlain is most readily caught at this time. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon, because when the moon rises it looks reddish through a sultry haze. It was also known as the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon.”
