Look, low in the sky, tonight’s full moon rises on the summer solstice, the first time that’s happened since 1948, according to the Old Farmers Almanac.
June’s full moon has traditionally been nicknamed the strawberry moon, a name that alludes to strawberry harvest season.
The summer solstice is the longest day of the year because the sun is at its highest point of the year. The moon, conversely, will appear low in the sky for much of the night.
The moon could take on a honey or amber hue because of atmospheric conditions.
The days will begin to get measurably shorter next week. The number of hours of daylight will continue to shrink until Dec. 21, the winter solstice.
