Look up tonight to catch a glimpse of the Strawberry Moon

News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Strawberry Moon will appear Friday.

It is the last full moon in spring and also known as the full moon in June.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the Algonquin tribes called it the Strawberry Moon because of the fruit’s harvest season, which takes place around this time.

NASA stated in a post that Europeans also used to call it the Honey Moon or Mead Moon because June was the best time to get honey from hives in the 1500s.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac has an online tool to help you find out when moonrise and moonset will occur in your area. 

The Strawberry Moon is one of the most colorful moons of the year because of its low, shallow path across the sky.
