Once in a Generation Event Tonight in the Night Sky
It's being called a once in a generation event tonight in the sky. The Strawberry Moon will take place tonight.
Here's the deal. It's the solstice, the longest day of the year or the start of summer and team that up with a full moon on the same day. The last time this event happened was in 1967. The event is being called once-in-a-generation astrological moment.
Tonight, June 20th is the night. It doesn't get dark until about 10, then after that look up and witness something that could not happen for another 50 years!
Why is it called the Strawberry Moon? Sometimes on hot and humid evenings as the moon sits low on the horizon, it sometimes has a golden to an orange glow.
The best times to look up are at 9:20 p.m. as the moon begins to rise, until sunrise at about 5:30.
The longest day of the year also means the shortest night of the year.
