All with some supernatural significance.
The Strawberry Moon comes from Native Americans, and the short season of the strawberry harvest.
We’re about to see an astrological phenomenon that hasn’t happened since 1967:
the joining of the Strawberry Moon and the summer solstice.
Shades of the Age of Aquarius!
We won't see this again until 2062!
This moon will be visible while the dying light of the day is still illuminating the world.
The full moon will be hanging low the entire time. Around 8:00pm ET, it rose fully.
It was dubbed “Strawberry Moon” by the Algonquins Native Americans
because they knew that when this moon rose,
it would finally be time to gather ripened fruit. Like strawberries!
In Europe, the moon is also called the Rose Moon, Mead Moon, and Honey Moon.
Did you know?
On June 21 (the day after a Strawberry Moon), we’ll probably be swept up in a large storm.
It may work out for the best, though, because according to folklore,
crabbing and shrimping are best during this time, too.
Shellfish and strawberries anyone?
Oh, and though it is called the Strawberry Moon,
it glows golden like the sun. Cool, huh?
