Vancouverites got a special treat last night as a stunning full moon illuminated the city on the summer solstice.

The “strawberry moon,” as it’s known, isn’t a different colour than any other full moon. It’s the first full moon of June and was traditionally used by Native American tribes as a signifier of the start of strawberry season.

The last time the strawberry moon happened on the first day of summer was back in 1967.

Here are photos of last night’s strawberry moon that bathed Vancouver in glowing white light.
