'Strawberry' Moon Shines During Summer Solstice
A full "strawberry" moon shone in the night sky on Monday during the summer solstice for the first time since June 1967.
A full moon rises behind Glastonbury Tor as people gather to celebrate the summer solstice on June 20, 2016 in Somerset, England.
The June full moon was refered to as "Strawberry Moon" by Algonquin tribe of indigenous Americans because it occurred around the time the strawberries were being picked.
