Strawberry supermoon of June rises Tuesday. What to expect.

As summer nears, thoughts of fresh berries for strawberry shortcake are usually in order, but June is also blessed with what Native American cultures have nicknamed the Full Strawberry Moon, and this year is extra special as it will also be designated as a supermoon to add to its lunar appeal.

June’s full moon, normally seen as the final full moon of spring or the first of summer, is traditionally called the Strawberry Moon. In a season filled with four supermoons (they occur monthly from May to August), June’s lunar event reaches its peak on Tuesday, June 14 at 7:51 am EDT (1151 GMT).
