The June Strawberry Super Moon rises on Tuesday. What to expect.

As summer approaches, thoughts of fresh berries for strawberry shortcake are usually in order, but June is also blessed with what Native American cultures have dubbed the Full Strawberry Moon, and this year is extra special because it will also be referred to as a supermoon to add to its lunar appeal.

The June full moon, normally considered the last full moon of spring or the first of summer, is traditionally called the Strawberry Moon. In a season filled with four super moons (they occur every May through August), the June lunar event peaks on Tuesday, June 14 at 7:51 a.m. EDT (11:51 a.m. GMT).
