Full Moon Bonfire Thursday, August 11

Full Moon Bonfire
Thursday, August 11, 2022
Location: On the beach between BW 1 and 2

Sunset – 8:08 pm
Moonrise – 8:23 pm
High Tide – 8:51 pm
Full Sturgeon Moon

It will likely be a warm evening but it is still a great time for a fire on the beach with family and friends.

To keep things simple, each person brings what you want: food, drinks, chairs and a stick of firewood for a big bonfire. Nothing will be provided but a beautiful beach, a bonfire and, hopefully, a full moon.  

People ask if the bonfire will be held if it’s rainy? The bonfire will be cancelled if it is raining or rain is threatening as few would be comfortable attending.

By terms of the permit, the fire needs to be out no later than 10:00 pm. The later sunset means no longer a conflict with dinner hour but we still have time to enjoy the evening.

The Sturgeon Moon will mark this year’s fourth and final Super Moon. Super Moons happen when the Moon reaches the nearest point to Earth. This technically makes the Super Moons extra bright and large when we view them from Earth, per Old Farmer’s Almanac.

Put these dates for the Full Moon Bonfires on your calendar: 

  • Saturday, September 10 – A host is needed for this event to occur.
  • Sunday, October 9
  • Tuesday, November 8

There’s always plenty of room on the beach for everyone, so invite a friend or bring your house guests. 

While the year’s last Super Moon is going to be beautiful, we can’t forget that the Perseid meteor shower is coming, too! The Perseid meteor shower is said to have peak viewing on August 11, 12 and 13, 2022. The Perseid meteor showers are often called “the best meteor shower of the year,” according to NASA because there are so many bright meteors you can see! The Super Moon however may limit the ability to see the meteors.

How the Full Moon got its name 

Per Old Farmers Almanac:
August: Full Sturgeon Moon – The sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were said to be most readily caught during this full Moon.  

Other names:
• Black Cherries Moon
• Corn Moon
• Flying Up Moon
• Harvest Moon
• Mountain Shadows Moon
• Ricing Moon

I found another website. This site also says the Cherokee Indians called it the Fruit Moon and the English Medieval name was the Corn Moon.  

Another website says the Chinese call it Harvest Moon.
