Last night, Sunday 6/19. Moon Rise/Sunset

Today Monday 6/20/16  brings in the summer solstice…and another event not seen in 70 years!

This year’s solstice will coincide with a full moon in a rare event that hasn’t been around in some 70 years.

A full “Strawberry” moon — coming from a belief that strawberry-picking season is at its peak  this time of the year, so says the Farmer’s Almanac.

The last time such an alignment — the summer solstice and a full moon — occurred was in 1948

Monday’s full moon, which is also called the Mead Moon or the Rose Moon, is the only night in the month when the moon is in the sky all evening long.
