The August sky features two full moons, a rare occurrence known as the "Blue Moon" month.
Both full moons are classified as "supermoons" due to their proximity to Earth.
Supermoons appear larger and brighter in the sky than regular full moons.
The first full moon, often called the "Sturgeon Moon," occurs on August 3-4.
The second full moon, dubbed the "Corn Moon," lights up the sky on August 31.
Supermoons result from the moon's elliptical orbit, bringing it closer to Earth.
August's celestial event provides a captivating visual treat for stargazers.
Blue Moons aren't necessarily blue; the term refers to the second full moon in a month.
The occurrence holds cultural significance in various traditions and folklore.
Witnessing two supermoons in a month can deepen appreciation for the cosmos.
