It’s time for another noteworthy celestial event. Be sure to cast your gaze toward the sky for this year’s Strawberry Moon.

According to AccuWeather, the moon will be 100% full at 3:12 p.m. EDT on Friday, June 5, although it won’t be visible until dusk, so the best time to see it is around sunset looking east.

This month’s full moon is called the Strawberry Moon in North America because it served as a signal to early tribal colonies that wild strawberries were ripened and ready for harvesting. Europeans call June’s full moon the Mead Moon, the Rose Moon and the Honey Moon.

The next full moon will be on July 5, it’s called the “Buck Moon” and it will have with it an extra celestial treat. There will be a penumbral lunar eclipse on this day.
