What do Hyperion, Proteus, and Puck all have in common?

亥伯龙神、普罗透斯、天位十五/顽皮的小精灵有什么共通之处呢?

Are they all comets, elements, moons, or Shakespeare characters?

它们都是彗星、元素、卫星还是莎士比亚笔下的人物?

The one thing all these objects have in common is that they`re moons of different planets. Ours, of course, is just the moon.

以上这些事物的共通支点就是他们都是不同行星的卫星。但是我们仅有月球这一个卫星。

JENNIFER GRAY, CNN METEOROLOGIST: Many of the moon`s nicknames date back to the early Native Americans. They named each full moon in every month to help them keep track of their planting and harvesting schedule.

加尼佛·格雷,CNN气象学家:月球很多昵称可以追溯到早期的美洲印第安人。他们每个月都会给满月起名字,帮助记录他们的种植和收获的安排。

SUBTITLE: What`s in a moon`s name?

那么每一个满月的名字是什么呢?

GRAY: The full name in April is known as the Pink Moon, signaling the first appearance of the wild ground phlox, one of the earliest spring flowers.

格雷:四月满月称为粉红月,意味着野外夹竹桃首次出现。夹竹桃是春天最早的一种花。

When you have two full moons in a calendar month, the second one is called the Blue Moon.

当在历月中有两次满月时,第二个满月被称为蓝月。

One of the more notable moons, the Harvest Moon in October, also known as the Hunter`s Moon or the Blood Moon. This is when the leaves are falling off the trees and the animals are fat. So, this signaled to tribes it was time to hunt all they could to get them to that long winter.

其中最著名的是十月,秋分后的满月,也被称为狩猎月或者血月。这时候,树木落叶,动物肥胖。所以,此时意味着人们是时候狩猎他们需要熬过漫长冬季的猎物了。

And another thing to note is that the moon does not appear pink during the Pink Moon, red during the Blood Moon, or blue during the Blue Moon. The only thing that can really alter the way we see the moon is if there`s a lot of dust, haze, ash or smoke in the atmosphere, the moon can sometimes have an orange or red glow.

另一件需要注意的是,在粉红月时,月亮不会呈现粉红色,血月时月亮也不会呈现红色,抑或是蓝月时,月亮不会呈现蓝色。唯一能改变我们看月亮的方式是,如果大气层中有大量的尘埃、烟雾、灰尘或烟雾,月亮有时会散发出橙色或红色的光辉。
