The June Full Moon occurs today at exactly 2:40 P.M. EDT (Sky & Telescope). This Full Moon is called the Honey Moon because it is low across the sky at night and as a result the summertime haze can make it appear yellow (Sky & Telescope). This Full Moon is also sometimes called the Strawberry Moon (NASA). Some publications consider this to be a Supermoon, while others do not (NASA). There are different thresholds for what qualifies as a Supermoon (NASA). Remember, a Supermoon occurs when the Moon is in its New or Full phase and is within 90% of perigee, or its closest distance to Earth (NASA).
