What is the Strawberry Solstice Moon?

The Strawberry Moon is the name given to the full moon in June, deriving its name from the Algonquin tribes who saw it as a signal to harvest ripening strawberries. This year, it coincides with the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, creating a rare and captivating moonrise.
