How To See Tonight's Extremely Rare "Strawberry Moon"

First came the Pink Moon. Then came the Flower Moon. Now, around 8 p.m. tonight, you'll see another gorgeous, rare appearance: the "Strawberry Moon," which will rise in the sky on the same day as the summer solstice.

June's full moon, dubbed "strawberry" because of the start of strawberry harvesting season, isn't predicted to sync up with the solstice again until 2062, so you don't want to miss a second of its beauty. Accuweather reports that parts of the moon may be covered by clouds spreading from New York to Missouri. But you can still catch the full rise and fall.

Beginning at 8 p.m., just after the start of summer at 6:34 p.m., Slooh.com will broadcast a livestream of the moon in all its strawberry — er, honey-colored — glory. Even though the moon was full early this morning, around 7 a.m., it won't be completely lit up against the night sky until evening.

Even if you can't catch it outdoors, be sure to watch it online with a summery cocktail in hand. If anything, count it as a reason to say cheers on a Monday.
