The next full moon is on Thursday, 24 June 2021 and is referred to as a Strawberry Moon
Known by some as a rose moon, the strawberry moon is so-called as it coincides with strawberry picking season.
Because the moon produces no visible light of its own, we can only see the parts of the moon that are lit up by other objects. A small amount of light comes from distant stars and the reflection of light from the earth (known as Earthshine). However, the main source of light for the moon is the sun.
