August’s full moon is tonight – hopefully you were able to see the lovely almost-full moon last night. Here in midcoast Maine, you’ll see moonrise right after 7:16 pm and sunset right around 7:24 pm, so it should be a great viewing and photographing opportunity. Moonset tomorrow morning at 5:45 am should also be a great opportunity.

August has been one of my best months for photographing the full moon , with some of my favorites coming from this month. Some of the names are quite wonderful, too — Moon of the Ripening, Moon When Cherries Turn Black, and Dog Days Moon I particularly like. I’ve included a few photographs from my series here, and enjoy the real thing tonight and tomorrow!
