MUNDANE MYSTERIES: What exactly is a Strawberry Moon?

You’ve probably heard a lot about the Strawberry Moon this week. It happened last night. But what exactly was it and what does it mean? The easiest way to describe it… it’s when the full super moon’s orbit is closest to the earth. The color isn’t exactly bright red like a Strawberry… it gets it’s name from back when indigenous groups of people in the northeast realized this time of year was best for picking ripe strawberries.
