‘Strawberry Moon’ on Summer Solstice
According to Space.com, tonight's full moon is a rarity because it is occurring on the same day as summer solstice. And not only is the once-a-month full moon happening on the longest day of the year (first day of summer), but it's also a "Strawberry Moon."
Independent.co.uk explains that it "is a full moon like any other, but marks the beginning of the strawberry season. The two events coincide once every 70 years."
So grab your strawberry picking basket and head out with the family for a day in the strawberry fields. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate.
