Anticipating the Blue, Green Corn Moon

When skies are clear and the timing is right, August’s full, Green Corn Moon is often spectacular. Tonight it will be extra special, as this full moon, also known as the Sturgeon Moon and Grain Moon, is a Blue Moon as well. Yes, yes, I know there’s only one full moon this August, but it’s true. Due to a little known astronomical rule, this is in fact a blue moon! Curious? Read more about the scientific and historic details of this unusual celestial event by visiting this link at

Blue moons aren’t blue, of course; at least not usually. But no matter the actual color of this full moon, with clear skies and a early rise to meet sunset’s afterglow, it’s certain to be a good show here on the east coast. Be sure to catch moonrise tonight at 7:10pm ET.
