US – Look Up at the turn of the season, the last moon of Spring will start tonight.
The Strawberry full moon will be Tuesday morning, June 14, 2022, appearing opposite the Sun in Earth-based longitude at 7:52 a.m. EDT. This will be late Monday night for the International Date Line West time zone, and Tuesday for many of the time zones on Earth. The Moon will appear full for about three days centered on this time, from Sunday evening through Wednesday morning.
Many cultures name full Moons, and while the names differ, we can all agree that June’s full Moon is a sweet sight to behold. The “Strawberry Moon”, as the last full Moon of Spring or the first full Moon of Summer is called, gained its name from the time of year when berries ripen. The name however doesn’t necessarily imply the Moon is red, though it does appear a reddish color when rising or setting. The Moon will appear full for about three days from early Wednesday morning through early Saturday morning. This year the Strawberry Moon is closer and larger than an average full Moon. When we have such a large bright Moon, it is sometimes called a Super Moon.
Whether you call it strawberry, honey, mead, or rose, enjoy the view this evening.
