Tonight at 8 p.m., the "Strawberry Moon" will make a special appearance (the first Summer Solstice full moon in 70 years!), coinciding with Summer Solstice.

In April, there was a Pink Moon, which is the smallest full moon, and in May, there was the Flower Moon-- the full moon said to symbolize nighttime of growth for flowers. Now the "Strawberry Moon," imbued with a yellow-brown color and said to symbolize the strawberry harvest, will rise up, illuminating the sky.

If you needed more of a reason to bear witness to tonight's beauty, Accuweather says the "Strawberry Moon" won't coincide with the solstice again until 2062. Accuweather also reports that the "Strawberry Moon" may be shrouded in clouds from New York to Missouri but fret not: you can peep it at its fullest during tonight's rise and at its fall the next day. You can also watch a livestream of the moon at

Meanwhile, astrological implications are abundant, with some astrologers, like Timothy Halloran, projecting "increased energy" for tonight. Hot.
