A FULL Moon will rise tonight – and our brains are about to be tricked
A FULL Moon will rise tonight – and our brains are about to be tricked by the lesser known "moon illusion".

Scientists say that when you see the moon looking really large as it rises in the sky your brain is actually playing a trick on you.

On the night of August 15, you should be able to spot a full moon in the sky.

It is known as the Sturgeon Moon because it is around this time of year that lots of sturgeon fish are caught.

The Sturgeon Moon is going to seem very big as it rises in the sky but, in reality it will be the exact same size when it appears on the horizon as it will be when it's high in the sky.

The (Nearly) Full Moon of August 2019 Wowed Astronauts in Space. Here's What YOU Can See

The stunning nearly full moon of August gleams in a new photo snapped Tuesday (Aug. 13) by the crew members aboard the International Space Station.

The crew captured this lunar moment while the station orbited 270 miles (434 km) above the South Pacific Ocean, according to a NASA image description.This photo was taken just a couple of days before the full moon, which will appear in the night sky Thursday (Aug. 15).

This full moon is also known as the "Sturgeon Moon," a name which is said to most likely derive from both colonists and Algonquin-speaking tribes in northeastern North America. Not all tribes native to North America use the term.

According to NASA's SkyCal, the moon will officially be full starting at 8:29 a.m. EDT (1256 GMT).
