It’s “summer, summer, summertime!”

Yep, this Monday brings the summer solstice — the first day of summer.

And as if this day wasn’t already a wonderful excuse to run outside, we’ve got another sweet treat. Monday will also feature a full “Strawberry” moon. The name comes from the belief that strawberry-picking season is at its peak during this time of the year.

Monday’s full moon, which is also called the Mead Moon or the Rose Moon, is the only night in the month when the moon is in the sky all evening long. Normally, throughout the June month, the moon shares some time with the daytime sky.

It’s a once-in-a-generation event! The last time we saw a “Strawberry” moon was back in 1948. And it’s not expected to happen again until June 21, 2062.

So, make sure you head out tonight to check out this amazing event.
