This is said to be the last supermoon of 2021.
The June full moon is occasionally called the ‘’strawberry moon’’ according to the Farmer’s Almanac. It says the nickname is connected to strawberries ripening in certain parts of North America, but it is not a reference to the color of the moon.
‘’Supermoon’’ is a loose term used to describe when the full moon is at its closest point or near earth in its orbit around the planet. A supermoon can look slightly bigger and shine brighter than a regular full moon.
‘’For 2021, some publications consider the four full Moons from March to June. Some the three full Moons from April to June.
And others only the two full Moons in April and May as supermoons,’’ NASA program executive Gordon Johnston said in April.
The best part about the full moon is, it’s lovely whether one calls it a supermoon or not. So don’t hesitate to step outside tonight so you can enjoy the last supermoon of 2021.
For an extra treat, grab a telescope or binoculars and get a little more up-close and personal with the full moon’s scenic craters.
