Strawberry Moon 2018: How to See the Full Strawberry Moon This June

Grady Vargas | 28 June, 2018, 10:11

Like numerous names for full moons, this one dates back to Native Americans, in this case to the Algonquin, the first native peoples encountered by European settlers in the New World.

What is a Strawberry Moon? You'll see a rare coincidence - the full "strawberry" moon and Saturn right alongside it.

According to the Farmer's Almanac, June's Full Moon is often called the Strawberry Moon because it was the time of year Native Americans picked ripening strawberries.

The ringed planet will look like a bright star next to the moon, which is full at 10:53 p.m.in Denver. A good time to see the moon and Saturn will be around Midnight in the southern sky. Keep in mind, tonight's full moon is the first full moon of winter there.

June's Full Moon, also known as the Strawberry Moon, will put on a celestial show with Saturn Wednesday night.

Like every full moon, this one will be best observed not when it's high in the sky, but as it rises at dusk. It happens because, when the sunlight enters Earth's atmosphere which is blocking, the light gets refracted in such a way that the green to violet wavelengths on the visible spectrum scatter more strongly than the red, thus giving the moon a reddish cast.

New York City - 8:06 p.m.

It will rise in the east after sunset.

As the moon pokes above the horizon, it will be a delicate orange color. Some of the June full moon names are Cold Moon, Oak Moon, and Long Night's Moon, reminiscent of our names in January.

Given favorable weather conditions, the July 27 blood moon will be visible throughout most of the eastern hemisphere including the totality phase in Africa, the Middle East and much of central Asia.

This eclipse will be the longest in this century and is expected to last for more than 100 minutes.

Mars will be the brightest and closest to Earth since 2003, according to Earth & Sky. However, none of that will be observable from North America because it occurs during daytime.
