The last super moon of 2021 will shine on our communities this week.
According to Native American tribes, the full moon in June is often called the Strawberry Moon, which marks the last full moon of spring of the first of summer. Strawberries are harvested in parts of North America during this time of year.
June Moon Folklore from the Old Farmers Almanac:
- A growing Moon and a flowing tide are lucky times to marry.
- Days following both the New and Full Moons are most likely to be rainy or stormy.
- Crabbing, shrimping, and clamming are best when the Moon is full.
The Strawberry Moon will make its appearance on Thursday, June 24.
“For 2021, some publications consider the four full Moons from March to June, some the three full Moons from April to June, and some only the two full Moons in April and May as supermoons,” said NASA’s Gordon Johnston.
