A Strawberry Moon Will Rise On Tuesday


A 'Strawberry Supermoon' will light up the night sky on Tuesday. The phenomena gets its name from the Algonquin tribe, who named it after strawberry harvesting season. Supermoons appear when the moon is full and at its closest orbital distance to Earth. The best time to view the Strawberry Supermoon will be just before 8pm EST on Tuesday night. Not sure what that means for us here in the Mid West though but watch out for it when it gets dark.

June's full moon is often referred to as the Strawberry Moon because it falls during the strawberry harvesting season in the northeastern US. Similarly, June's full moon has also been called the Rose Moon because it occurs around the time roses bloom.
