Sturgeon Full Moon walk at Mount Hope Farm

About thirty people had a chance to get a brief glimpse of the Sturgeon Full Moon as it rose in a cloudy sky above North Tiverton, RI, on August 16, 2019. Organizer Ray Payson, President of the Bristol Land Conservation Trust, welcomed the crowd at the Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, RI, before they walked from the parking lot next to the barn down the road to the cabin that overlooks Mount Hope Bay to wait for the moon rise that was to take place after 8:40 p.m. that evening. The moon made it’s first appearance a little before 9:00 p.m. through a cloud-covered sky before disappearing again. Click here for a seven-minute video of the event.
