Did you see the strawberry moon?

Published June 30, 2018 by Nan Mykel
CNN:In the United States, the peak of the full moon happens depending on your time zone. In the Eastern Time Zone, that will happen at 12:53 a.m. Thursday, June 28. Back on the West Coast, peak time will be 9:53 p.m. PT Wednesday, June 27.

Strawberry Moon
On June 27 and 28, 2018, find the full moon – called the Rose Moon, Flower Moon or Strawberry Moon, and the Oak Moon, Cold Moon or Long Night’s Moon from the Southern Hemisphere – and look in the moon’s glare for a starlike point. That point is a planet, Saturn.Full Strawberry Moon and Saturn on June 27 and 28 | Tonight | EarthSkyEarthSky
In one of Bethanykay’s photo postings the moon looked different and I asked her if that was a strawberry moon.   She said she didn’t know what a strawberry moon was, so I asked her for the date of her photo. She said  she thought it was June 25. Here’s her photo–maybe it was on its way to being the strawberry moon?
I saw one several years ago and pulled off the road to snap it. It’s buried in a bunch of hard drives now, but it was remarkable. I didn’t know what I was looking at.  Check it out next year!

  • I ACTUALLY HEARD THAT A FEW NIGHTS LATER WAS A STRAWBERRY MOON!!! When you asked me I asked around and I had it all planned out to go and take more photos and it was pouring rain with total cloud cover. I was so bummed!!!! But am still happy with what I got. Hope you had a nice weekend.
