The August Full Moon is often called the Sturgeon Moon due to the great number of huge freshwater fish that could once be found in rivers and lakes in Northern America and Europe.

A live broadcast video shows a bird’s-eye view of the Iranian capital city with an extraordinary look at an eclipsed “Sturgeon Moon”.

As the natural satellite rises during sunset and floats on the horizon, it takes on an orange tint. 

The Full Moon in August is also known as Grain Moon, Green Corn Moon, Fruit Moon, and Barley Moon, which are a combination of Native American, Anglo-Saxon, and Germanic month names.
