Full Moon June 2021: The Strawberry Moon Reveals The Sky On June 24, 2021

The moon will present the inhabitants of the planet with another incredibly beautiful phenomenon – the so-called “strawberry” supermoon, which will decorate the sky on the first full moon of summer and close the series of supermoons on Thursday, June 24, 2021. The Komsomolskaya Pravda website broadcasts live online.

June 2021 turned out to be rich in astronomical events. You can remember the solar eclipse, the retrograde of the planets, and now you can admire the “strawberry” supermoon.

Each supermoon has its own name, usually not associated with the color of the moon itself. Previously, people gave names to full moons based on seasonality, as well as weather conditions, flora or fauna. The “strawberry” full moon in Europe got its name because at this time they harvest roses, and in North America the “hot” moon is known due to the beginning of the sultry season or “blooming” because of the variety of flowers.

It will be possible to see the unusual celestial phenomenon on June 24 at 21:39 Moscow time (18:39 GMT). The satellite of the Earth at this time will be located at a distance of 361.5 thousand kilometers. The “strawberry” moon will be visible throughout the country from June 24 to 26, 2021.
