Almost Full Moon August 19, 2013

I have a habit of catching almost-full moons on clear nights, and rarely get a true full moon. This one is from last night, and about 98% illuminated. I'm going to try again tonight! 

Incidentally, this full moon is known as the "Full Sturgeon Moon, the Full Red Moon, the Green Corn Moon and the Grain Moon" (Space.com via Yahoo!). News sites LOVE reporting on Blue Moons and their various moon names. Full moons make the headlines more than I ever noticed before!
