In the summer of 2023, moon lovers are in for a treat with four supermoons, and August marks an exciting month as it opens and closes with these celestial events. The Full Sturgeon Moon graces the sky on August 1, followed by the Full Blue Moon on August 30. Supermoons occur when the moon is both in the full moon phase and closer to Earth in its elliptical orbit, resulting in a 30% brighter and 14% larger lunar disk. The Sturgeon supermoon, rising around 9:30 p.m. EDT on August 1, will be followed by a new moon on August 16, and the cycle continues with the Full Blue Moon on August 30. The summer of supermoons concludes with the Full Corn Moon on September 28, leaving sky gazers eagerly awaiting the next supermoon spectacle in 2024.
