It's pretty common to get a time for the sunrise and sunset, but where do you find a moonrise time?

There is a strawberry moon tonight.  Unfortunately it's not because it looks like one.  There's actually another reason why it's called that.

According to the Farmer's Almanac, the term "Strawberry Moon" is a native American phrase that comes from The North American Algonquin tribe and it was a reminder to start picking wild ripened strawberries.

It doesn't really have a red hue to it, but it will be a colorful full moon.  Look for it to be more of a yellow though.

The moon will be low so you will get what you call a "moon illusion" from it.  Which means that it will look much bigger because it will be lower.

We only get so many full moons in a year.  This will be our 6th.  And we will get 7 more before the end of the year.

If you want to see it, make sure to check your moonrise time by clicking here and entering your zip code.  It's simple as that!

Happy moon gazing!
