The “strawberry moon” rose low in the sky on Monday night, tinted pink and orange by high thin clouds and humid air. It was the first time the strawberry moon coincided with the summer solstice since 1967 — the “summer of love” — and the concurrence won’t happen again until 2062.

This month’s moon reached its fullest point around 7 a.m. on Monday morning. It rose almost fully illuminated at 8:41 p.m. on the East Coast.

The strawberry moon is alternatively named the “honey moon,” the “rose moon” or the “mead moon” because of its warm hue. This hue typical of June full moons because they rise so low in the sky, which allows the light to be filtered by the atmosphere such that the orange and red become more visible.

Thank you to everyone who shared their strawberry moon with us on Twitter, Flickr and Facebook!
