August’s Full “Corn Moon”


The full “Corn Moon” arrives today at 18:35 UTC. This Moon is also a “Super Moon”, appearing 7% larger than an average full Moon. Look for it rising over the eastern horizon after sunset. It makes for a great photo-op, or for a little end-of-summer contemplation as the air turns cooler and the nights grow longer.

The August Full Moon is also called the “Grain Moon”.
