Full moon seen rising over the Acropolis and Temple of Poseidon in Greece


The August full moon was seen rising over ancient archaeological sites in Greece, such as the Acropolis and the Temple of Poseidon, on Sunday night.

The full moon, which many call a seasonal ‘blue moon,’ gave stargazers something to smile about on the night as they prepared their cameras to capture the rare sight.

120 archaeological sites and museums across Greece also opened their gates free of charge so that the public can enjoy the August full moon. At the same time, a series of cultural events have been scheduled between August 20-25, 2021.

Music concerts, theatrical performances, dance performances, poetry recitations, documentary screenings, art exhibitions, stargazing and guided tours are the main events that have been organised this year by the Ministry of Culture and Sports for the August full moon.
