The Super Strawberry Moon is TONIGHT on June 14th!


What Is A Supermoon?

The full moon on June 14 isn’t just a regular moon, it’s a cool moon because it’s *super* and appears bigger in the nighttime sky. In actuality, “A supermoon occurs when the Moon’s orbit is closest (perigee) to Earth at the same time the Moon is full,” according to NASA. In other words, it looks *ahem* supersized.

What Is A Strawberry Moon?

As with every full moon, June’s full moon has a nickname. The last full moon of spring is most commonly referred to as the Strawberry Moon — as it marked a time to harvest ripening strawberries — though Native Americans also called it names like Berries Ripen Moon, Green Corn Moon, and Hot Moon.

How to see the Strawberry Moon in 2022?

The best time to view the spectacle is approximately 12 hours post peak (at 7:24 p.m. ET) because the moon will be its closest to Earth, meaning June's supermoon will be in full force.

To catch a glimpse of the large, golden-hued ball, look towards the southeast to watch it rise just above the horizon. It can easily be spotted with the naked eye, but cross your fingers for clear skies!

When is the next full moon after the Strawberry Moon?

Following June's Strawberry Moon is July's Super Buck Moon. It will arrive in the night sky on July 13, 2022.

When is the next supermoon?

Similar to June's Strawberry supermoon, the Buck Moon on July 13 will also be a supermoon, according to EarthSky.org.
