Full Strawberry Moon on June 26, 2010


Tonight, June 26, 2010, is your chance to see the "Full Strawberry Moon."

Native Americans who lived in the area that is now the northern and eastern United States kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to the recurring full Moons.


These names, and some variations, were used by the Algonquin tribes.

Europeans named the June moon, Full Rose Moon.

Nancy,
The full Strawberry Moon sure has been beautiful. I just like to stand at the window before I go to bed and look at how lovely the moon is. It was really pretty last night.

I liked this posting very much.

I hope you have a safe and happy Fourth of July.

I saw that beautiful moon Saturday night coming up through the trees on the mountains. Made me think of the times a young girl and a young man sprawled on a blanket on the grass, held hands and basked in the moon light on warm nights in south Georgia, many years ago.
