A Beautiful Month To Kick Off Summer
“Doubtless God could have made a better berry, but doubtless God never did.” (Dr. William Butler, 17th Century English Writer)
Strawberry Moon and Time!!
A full moon, known in some cultures as a “Strawberry Moon” greeted night sky watchers on June 20, and coincidentally fell on the summer solstice, the longest day of the year.
Space.com received a flood of gorgeous photographs of this celestial sight from readers all over the world. It was apparently a very popular event; even an astronaut on the space station couldn’t resist taking a snapshot of Earth’s neighbor.
The so-called “Strawberry Moon” may have gotten its name from Native American tribes because it arrives in June, when strawberry season is at its peak. But when the moon is close to the horizon, it also takes on a reddish tint, and in Europe, the June full moon is sometimes known as the “Rose Moon.” (http://www.space.com/33240-delicious-strawberry-full-moon-wows-stargazers.html) — We happen to see a beautiful Strawberry Moon this year while sitting on the deck of a beach house overlooking the ocean — it was Gorgeous!!!!
