🌕 Full Moon

June 24, 2021 @ 1:40 pm – June 25, 2021 @ 12:59 am America/Chicago Timezone

This is the last of three supermoons for 2021. The Moon will be near its closest approach to the Earth and may look slightly larger and brighter than usual. (12% larger than when it is at it’s smallest and most distant from earth, or apogee.)

This full moon was known by Native American tribes as the Strawberry Moon because it signaled the time of year to gather ripening fruit. It also coincides with the peak of the strawberry harvesting season. This moon has also been known as the Rose Moon and the Honey Moon.

In the southern hemisphere, we could call this the Long Night’s Moon
or the Moon before Yule. The midwinter full Moon has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun. These are the longest nights of the year. It might also be called The Full Dark Moon. In Australia this might be called The Full Dingo Moon as this month marks the end of their breeding cycle and the first litters are appearing.
