Strawberry Moon Over Chicagoland; Photo Over Recreation Park, Arlington Heights


Did you see the Strawberry Moon? Strawberry Moon rising over Chicagoland, Monday, June 4, 2012.

The Strawberry Moon appears in Late Spring (June). The Strawberry Moon is also known as the Flower Moon, the Honey Moon, Rose Moon, Hot Moon, Planting Moon. The Hindu name is Wat Poornima. The Sinhala name (Sri Lanka) is Poson.

Chicago missed the partial eclipse of the Moon because of clouds this morning before sunrise and during moonset, but Monday night’s moonrise was spectacular. There was a tint of strawberry.
