This Monday, June 20th brings the summer solstice, which marks the beginning of the season and a chance to soak in copious amounts of sunshine.
This year’s solstice will be extra special, as it will coincide with a full moon in a rare event that hasn’t been seen in nearly 70 years.
Monday night will feature a full “Strawberry” moon — the name comes from the belief that strawberry-picking season is at its peak during this time of the year, according to the Farmer’s Almanac. A strawberry moon is not red or pink as might be expected.
The last time such an alignment — the summer solstice and a full moon — occurred was in 1948, the Baltimore Sun reported, citing the Almanac. It won’t happen again until 2062.
