Full Moon

This full moon was known to Native American Tribes as the Sturgeon Moon. This is because they knew that the sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this full moon. 

The Dakotah Sioux called it "Moon When All Things Ripen" and the Ojibwe called it the "Blueberry Moon"
