·1 min read

If you think you've seen all the celestial events to happen this year, you've got another thing coming. While May gave us a handful of reasons to keep our eyes to the sky (like its Eta Aquarid Meteor Shower and Super Flower Blood Moon), June's locked and loaded with starry happenings as well. From its stunning solar eclipse on June 10 to a Super Strawberry Moon - which takes place on June 24 and is the last supermoon of 2021 (!) and the last full moon of spring - June's yet another month for astrological awakenings. If you're interested in how the heck to watch the Super Strawberry Moon, here's what you need to know.

How to Watch the Super Strawberry Moon

June's full moon is called a Strawberry Moon to mark the ripening of berries that takes place in June. The moon will rise just after sunset in the southeast and will reach its maximum illumination at 2:40 p.m. ET. It's also a supermoon, meaning the full moon is at its closest monthly point to Earth in orbit, giving it a magnified look. The moon will have a golden hue to it, and will only be visible for 20 minutes after sunset - so make sure to step outside in the early evening!
