The next full moon will occur on Tuesday, June 14 at 7:52 am, but the moon will appear full the night before and after its peak to the casual stargazer. The June full moon is also known as the Full Strawberry Moon. It will also feature a supermoon.
The full moon shows its face to Earth about once a month.
Most of the time, the full moon isn’t perfectly full. We always see the same side of the moon, but part of it is in shadow, due to the moon’s rotation. Only when the moon, Earth and the sun are perfectly aligned is the moon 100% full, and that alignment produces a lunar eclipse.
The month’s full moon is also classed as a supermoon, and so may appear slightly larger in the sky than normal.
