The next Strawberry moon is on Monday, 22nd June 2024.
The Strawberry moon in 2023 occurred on Saturday, 3rd June.
The moon produces no visible light of its own, so 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.
Known by some as a rose moon, the strawberry moon is so-called as it coincides with strawberry picking season.
The strawberry harvest reaches its peak in July in the UK and can continue into August and September if the weather holds.
