This weekend, you might want to look up at the night sky and catch a sight of the **strawberry moon**, the last full moon of June. But don’t expect to see a pink or red moon – the name has nothing to do with the color of our natural satellite.

The strawberry moon is a nickname given by some Native American tribes to the full moon that occurs around the time of the strawberry harvest in the northeastern U.S.. It is also known as the rose moon, the honeymoon, or the mead moon in different cultures and regions.

The strawberry moon is not only a sign of summer but also a spectacular sight to behold. It is often larger and brighter than other full moons, especially when it is near the horizon. This year, the strawberry moon is also a supermoon, meaning it is slightly closer to Earth than usual, making it appear even bigger and brighter.

The strawberry moon will reach its peak on Saturday, June 3 at 11:42 p.m. ET, but you can enjoy its beauty throughout the weekend. If you have a clear sky, you might also spot some planets near the moon, such as Venus and Mars. And if you are lucky enough to have some wild strawberries or roses nearby, you can enjoy their fragrance and flavor as well.

So don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate the start of summer with the strawberry moon. It is a rare and wonderful event that will fill your senses with amusement.
