It's been quite a year for moon viewing already. After May's "super flower blood moon" eclipse, we're returning to a straight-up full moon today. It will be the last supermoon of 2021.
The June full moon is sometimes called the "strawberry moon," according to the Farmer's Almanac, which says the nickname is connected to strawberries ripening in certain parts of North America. It's not a reference to the color of the moon.
However, you may still get lucky with the moon's hue. "Towards the end of June, the moon usually sits in a lower position in the sky and shines through more of our atmosphere," NASA said in a statement on Wednesday. "Because of this, our moon can sometimes give off a pinkish hue."
"Supermoon" is a loose term. It's used to describe when the full moon is at or near its closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit around our planet. A supermoon can look slightly larger and brighter than a regular full moon.
