The June Full Moon is nicknamed the Strawberry Moon because in North America strawberries are harvested this month, according to the Royal Museums Greenwich. Europeans nicknamed it the pink moon, while other cultures called it the hot moon for the onset of the summer heat.
It’s not a super moon though, the next one is scheduled for June 2022.
