Strawberry Moon

Tonight marks the beginning of summer, and for the first time since 1967, June’s full moon, the Strawberry Moon, coincided with summer solstice. This event hasn’t occurred in the Northern Hemisphere in nearly 70 years!

The moonlight drowned out all but the brightest of the stars, and clouds like gossamer swept through the sky.
