All Red Sunday: Residents Of Osaka Bay, Japan, Witnessed This Stunning View Of Summer's Last Full Moon
On August 26 this year, the world witnessed the last full moon of the summer. Photographer Dennis Doucet took this spectacular picture in Osaka Bay in Japan. In some way, the image looks a lot like the Full Blood Moon of July.
Tonight's spectacular Full Sturgeon Moon over Osaka Bay, Japan! The Indians around the Great Lakes found it the easiest to catch sturgeons during the period of this moon. #CNNiReport #CNNSpace #CNNTravel #space #sky #FullMoon #moon #astronomy #summer #SummerNight #travel pic.twitter.com/9ctK2IqHMu— Dennis Doucet (@photosjpn) August 26, 2018
In Japan, the movement of the moon at this time of the year positively affects fish migration, and Indians living around the Great Lakes have better sturgeon catches around this time.
The last full moon of the summer is called the 'sturgeon moon'. Native Americans also call it the 'green corn moon' and 'grain moon' as they gather their crops this time of the year.
What says the moon?
Apart from fishing and harvest cycles, astrologists also have their take on this summer phenomena.
Moon enters Pisces today for a very emotional #FullMoon that features supportive sextiles to Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn. Creative ideas, projects and emotions can be manifested under this influence. #astrology— Linda Simons (@danceofphoenix) August 26, 2018
#FullMoon in #Pisces coming up on 8/26. The house it falls in (Moon in one house & the Sun is in the other) is where you feel some kind of urgency, conclusion or illumination. Full Moons typically manifest as endings and facing things we would rather not— StarsMoonandSun ✨🌘🌞 (@starsmoonandsun) August 25, 2018

Besides Japan, the summer moon was also visible in other parts of the world, and many people on social media shared images that were just as spectacular as Doucet’s.
