This June full moon is unique. Around every 20 years, the Strawberry Moon coincides with the summer solstice, which is on June 20.

During the summer solstice the Sun is highest up and because the moon is always opposite the Sun, this year you will see that the Moon is 10 widths lower on the horizon than the Sun ever is. If you’re awake after midnight, you will see how very low the Moon is. It won’t happen again for another 18 years!
