If you thought a regular full moon was pretty, you haven’t seen anything yet! Get ready to see some of the most GORGEOUS pics of the moon EVER as HollywoodLife.com shares the EPIC Strawberry Moon with you.
June 20 marks the first day of summer AND the rise of a full Strawberry Moon! This event hasn’t occurred since 1967, and likely won’t occur again for DECADES! Experience this insane event by clicking here to see some AMAZING photos!
If you are not seeing the Strawberry Moon in person right now, the next best thing you can do is check out our photos. Though you TOTALLY should get yourself to a good viewing location ASAP. So where does the awesome strawberry color come from anyway? Well, don’t you DARE call it pink, because it is definitely strawberry, glowing an INSANELY beautiful, unique amber color, for a couple of reasons. The moon is hanging incredibly low, and its light is being forced through thicker, more humid air. That combo causes the awesome color! That’s where the names Honey Moon and Mead Moon came from too.
Seriously, can you believe this moon??? If you are a lover of stargazing, night swimming and dancing in the moonlight you will totally be a sucker for this event. And if not, it’s still pretty amazing. But you better check it out tonight while you still can because tomorrow it will be gone! And we mean gone for a WHILE. Because, using universal time, another meeting of the summer solstice and Strawberry Moon will not happen again until June 21, 2062. So…you probably don’t want to miss it today. So who is down for grabbing a bottle of strawberry wine and chillin’ outside to watch that epic moon? We are!
