What is the strawberry moon? Meaning of June 2021's full moon
This month's full moon is due to appear in the sky on June 24. The meaning of its name is said to link back to North American tribes.
Johnston adds that, according to some reports, the name might refer to the moon's color at this time of year because—for northern parts of Europe at least—the full moon nearest the summer solstice"shines through more atmosphere than at other times of the year, making it more likely to have a reddish color."
Light that passes through more of the Earth's atmospheredoes tend to appear red, which is what gives sunrises and sunsets their trademark glow.Meanwhile, there are also many other names for the full moon in June. An old European name for it is the mead moon or honey moon, referring to an alcoholic fermentation process.
And The Old Farmer's Almanac states the full moon in June may also be called the berries ripen moon, the hot moon, and the egg laying moon.NASA data shows next week's full moon will technically occur at 7:40 p.m. UTC (3:40 p.m. EDT), but to the naked eye, full moons can appear to be full for as long as three days, the National Radio Astronomy Observatory notes. headtopics.com
Gianluca Masi, founder of Europe's Virtual Telescope Project, has said he will be running a livestream of the strawberry moon rising above Rome, and has also claimed the moon will qualify as a supermoon—the last of 2021.There are no official rules for when a moon
qualifies as a supermoonand different outlets differ in their definitions. Generally, the term refers to a period of time when the moon is full and also particularly close to the Earth in its orbit.NASA states the term typically refers to a full moon"that comes within at least 90 percent" of its closest approach to our planet. TimeAndDate.com uses the definition of a full moon that occurs when"the center of the Moon is less than 223,694 miles from the center of Earth."
In any case, the Virtual Telescope Project stream can be viewed on the project's website, scheduled for 3:00 p.m. EDT.A stock photo shows the Moon in the sky with clouds. There are many different names for each monthly full moon. Read more: Newsweek »
