The moon rises behind the columns of the ancient marble Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion, about 70 Km (45 miles) south-southeast of Athens on August 2, 2020, one day ahead of August's full Moon – known as the “Sturgeon Moon” – which will be best seen in the southeastern sky on Monday. [Petros Giannakouris/AP]
