A full Strawberry Moon will light up Vancouver skies on Wednesday night

Jun 27 2018, 12:01 am

Keep an eye out on the night sky Wednesday evening as a full Strawberry Moon will appear over Vancouver.

The first full moon in June is considered a ‘strawberry moon’ as it signalled to Indigenous Canadian tribes that it is a strawberry season, when strawberries start to ripen.

According to Space.com, the “June full moon is typically known as the Full Strawberry Moon, or the full Rose Moon and the Lotus Moon.”

And based on the forecast by TimeAndDate.com, the moon will rise at 8:58 pm and set at 5:45 am.

If the weather cooperates, don’t forget to look up tomorrow night to see if you can see the beauty of the full ‘strawberry moon’.

While much of North America will also be able to see Saturn on this night, it will not be visible from Metro Vancouver.
