You'll Be Able To See the Strawberry Supermoon on Thursday | 22 Words

The very last "strawberry" supermoon of the year is happening in just a few days, and it looks like we're in for an amazing view!

June's final full moon is called the Strawberry Supermoon.

The name derives from the Algonquin Native American tribes in eastern North America.

The Strawberry Moon can also be called Honey Moon, the Mead Moon, or the Rose Moon...

And the appearance of this form of the moon was used as a signal to gather ripening wild strawberries.

Pretty clever!

This is the final supermoon of 2021, so be prepared for an incredible sighting!

The moon will reach the closest point to Earth during its orbit, meaning it will be bigger and brighter than ever.

The supermoon will reach its peak at around 2:40 p.m. on Thursday, but we won't see its splendor until later on.

This will be the most colorful moon of the year because of its low path across the sky, giving it an orange glow as the light travels through our atmosphere.

So despite its name, it won't appear pink or red. Instead, it will have a golden hue to it...

But it's definitely worth looking out for!
