Strawberry Moon Photos Are Absolutely Stunning

Strawberry feels forever.

Monday night's moon was a special one.

For the first time in decades, a full moon coincided with the summer solstice.

According to The Old Farmer's Almanac, the June full moon is called the "strawberry moon" by some indigenous tribes who used it as "a signal to gather ripening fruit."
