The night sky has always captivated humans, and observing celestial events such as a supermoon or blue moon can be a mesmerizing experience.

In August 2023, stargazers worldwide will have the rare opportunity to witness two supermoons and a blue moon in the same month.

A supermoon occurs when the full moon's orbit brings it closest to Earth, making it appear larger and brighter than usual.

The first supermoon, called the Sturgeon Moon, will peak on August 2, followed by a blue moon on August 31, which will also be a supermoon.

The term "blue moon" refers to the second full moon occurring within a single calendar month, which happens once every two and a half years.

To make the most of these celestial events, find a clear open area with an unobstructed view of the horizon and avoid light pollution.

Binoculars or a telescope can enhance the viewing experience, but they are not necessary to witness the supermoons and blue moon.

Dress warmly and bring a blanket or chair to sit on to make the stargazing experience comfortable.

This can be a beautiful memory.


The Sturgeon Moon gets its name from some Native American groups, particularly those in the Great Lakes region, who found that sturgeon fishes were most abundantly caught during this month.

Witnessing two supermoons and a blue moon in August 2023 is a rare opportunity that should not be missed, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

So, mark your calendars, get ready to witness the magic of the night sky, and make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime celestial show.
