Strawberry Moon Rises Off South English Coast

The “strawberry moon” was capturing rising off St Leonards-on-Sea on Tuesday night, June 14.

Video filmed by Emily Carding in the town in southern England shows June’s supermoon.

NASA said the moon would appear full for about three days, from Sunday evening through Wednesday morning.

The name is derived from the Native American Algonquin tribe, who named it for the season of strawberry harvesting in the US northeast.

Old European names for June’s full moon include the mead moon, honey moon and rose moon, NASA said. Credit: Emily Carding via Storyful
