Wednesday's wonderful fact

Lauren Hyde's picture perfectly capture a super moon seen from the Shotley peninsula, but did you know that the last one of the year was called a Sturgeon Moon? It was given its name by native American fishing tribes due to the abundance of fish during that time of the year. The super moon is also called the green corn moon, the grain moon and the red moon.
