Ever since the last eclipse a month or so ago, the world has become obsessed with outer space.

Similar to the deep dark depths of the ocean, it is an unexplored area that naturally causes curiosity.

People are tuning into eclipses, unique lunar events, and other outer space phenomena now more than ever.

Well, on June 21, New England will be on THE PATH OF TOTALITY (not really, it's not an eclipse). But, New England will be one of the best regions in the country to view the strawberry moon.

And this only happens once every 20 years or so.

If you're anything like me, you probably don't believe that a "strawberry moon" is a real thing. Well, it is! And it is exactly what it sounds like...a pink moon.

But that is not why it's called a strawberry moon. According to a Milwaukee Journal Sentinal article:

...the Strawberry Moon name has been used by Native American Algonquian tribes living in the northeastern U.S. and the Ojibwe, Dakota and Lakota people to signify the ripening of strawberries ready to harvest.

The summer solstice will be on June 20, 2024. The following day, the moon will be one of the lowest full moons we've seen in years, according to the Farmer's Almanac.

So not only will the moon be pink, but it will be enormous. And the low "high point" of the moon will give it an orangey-pink color.

No need to buy those silly glasses for this epic moon coming our way. Simply mark your calendars for June 21.

You'll probably want to put it in your calendar on June 20, since the moon will be the most pink and full the following morning.
