The Sturgeon moon is considered the fourth consecutive supermoon after the Buck moon in July, the Strawberry moon in June and the Flower moon in May. A supermoon refers to a full moon when the moon is within 90% of perigee - its closest approach to Earth.

Beginning in the 1930s, Maine's Farmer's Almanac began publishing Native American full moon names, according to NASA. Based on this almanac, the Algonquian tribes of the northeastern United States named the August full moon the sturgeon moon, after a large fish that was easier to catch at the same time of year in the Great Lakes.

From a supermoon perspective, the supermoon would appear seven degrees above the east-southeast horizon, according to NASA. The sturgeon moon will peak on Thursday, August 11 at around 21:36 pm (NY time). It will also be almost full on Wednesday (10), Friday and Saturday (August 12-13).

The sturgeon moon could outshine another major celestial event: the Perseid meteor shower. The most popular annual meteor shower, active from July to September, peaks from Friday to Saturday (August 12-13).

NASA suggests that the best time to watch meteors is after midnight on Saturday (August 13). Observers should be away from light pollution, looking north and away from the Moon.

The next supermoon will not occur before August 1, 2023 and August 31, 2023.
