This month’s full moon occurs on Monday, June 17 at 4:31 a.m. EDT, but the moon will appear full the night before and after its peak to the casual observer, making for an extra special night show for Father’s Day. June’s full moon is known as the Strawberry Moon, though it has many other nicknames by different cultures.

The next full moon will be:
Monday 17 June 2019 4:30:40 am (EDT)
Moon sign: Sagittarius 25° 53’

This moon is named after the beginning of the strawberry picking season. It’s other names are Rose Moon, Hot Moon, or Hay Moon as hay is typically harvested around now.
This moon appears in the same month as the summer solstice, the longest day of the year (June 21) in which we can enjoy approximately 17 hours of daylight.
