June’s Strawberry Moon Expected To Be A Beautiful Sight To Kick Off Summer Season
Dear Spring, it’s been real, It’s been fun, It’s been real fun but It seems like Summer is ready to come out and play and well, I think we’re ready for it!
Spring has come and will soon be gone and with that comes another spectacular Full moon to kick off the start of Summer!
June’s Full Moon is typically the last full Moon of spring or the first of summer and is also known as the Strawberry Moon.
This month’s full moon will be the second Super Moon of 2022 and is expected to reach peak illumination around 5:52 a.m. Mountain Time on Tuesday, June 14th but will also be visible Tuesday evening according to The Farmers Almanac.
What’s With The Name?
According to timeanddate.com, June’s Full Moon is named after the wild strawberries that ripen during this time of year.
But hold on! Despite its exciting name it doesn't necessarily mean that the Moon will be red, although it can appear a more reddish color when rising or setting.
