A rare look tonight at the Strawberry Moon.

Now You Know

Strawberry Moon

  • The “lowest” full moon of the year.
  • The moon’s shallow path, in a low arc along the sky, allows us to see it more closely to the horizon (instead of up in the sky). The earth’s atmosphere gives it a rose-y, orange, yellowish glow.
  • “Strawberry Moon” may have also come from a Native American tribe as the full moon signaled time to harvest strawberries.
Now You Know

The Strawberry moon is also known as the Honey Moon or Rose Moon, but the color may vary depending on where you view it. The lowest pass of the moon signals we are close to summer which "officially" begins this Friday.
