A super moon is when the moon is full while it is in “perigee” or closest to earth in it’s orbit. The full moon in August is also known as the “sturgeon moon”, named by Native-Americans that noted the increase in the large fish and how easily they were caught this time of year. The full moon officially occurs at 9:36pm Thursday.
