June’s Full Strawberry Supermoon will occur on Tuesday at 7:51 a.m. EDT (1151 GMT), but the moon will appear full to observers in the day before and after the actual event. So feel free to watch the moon shine from June 13-15. It gets its “strawberry” name from the short strawberry harvesting season it coincides with.
