Don’t Forget to Check Out the Strawberry Moon This Week
Just after sunset on Thursday, June 24th, 2021, you'll be able to catch a view of the Strawberry Moon, characterized by its massive size and golden hue. While it is not technically a "supermoon," it will certainly be a very impressive display.
The full moon names that we have come to recognize from The Farmers' Alamanac are derived from Native American, European, and Colonial American sources. The "strawberry" part comes from the season in which berries are the ripest and can be found referenced as such in Ojibwe, Algonquin, Ojibwe, Lakota peoples, and more. June is a month of abundance for places across the globe and a great month for berry picking.
The next time you will have an opportunity to check out a Strawberry Moon will be June 14th, 2022, so make sure you take this opportunity to take the kids outside after dinner to check it out. You won't need a telescope to see this, that's for sure, but it certainly wouldn't hurt if you want to get an absolutely epic view. We used to pull ours out when I was a kid to check out different cycles of the moon. It was definitely a fun and memorable experience from my childhood.
There's something special about a hot summer night staring up at the big beautiful moon and the connectedness you feel to everyone else looking at the same moon. The moon is something admired across the globe. Each time I look at it, I feel a little bit less alone.
