GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - There will be four full moons this year, and the August Full Moon rose Tuesday night.
Technically, a Blue Moon is the third full moon in a four, full-moon season. But last night's moon wasn't blue in color.
The moon was directly opposite the sun, illuminating it perfectly.
It is also called the Full Sturgeon Moon because this type of fish was most readily caught during this month, a Full Red Moon because weather and atmospheric conditions during the season can give it a reddish hue, the Grain Moon, and the Green Corn Moon because the crop grows tall this time of year.
11 fire departments from several counties were called out to a fire at an adult entertainment club Wednesday afternoon.
Holland police were searching for 28-year-old Mark Steven Randall Harris, who was considered armed and dangerous, but arrested him late Wednesday night.
