They called it a “Strawberry Super Moon.”

The Strawberry term is given to the first full moon in June. It’s said to have come from Native Americans, who used the light from the full moon to harvest their strawberry crop.

The Super label is given to the full moon that is closest to the earth in distance in any year.

Last night, we were treated to both in our hemisphere.

My dear wife Karen and I hit the front porch about 9 p.m., and there it was, risen over the neighbor’s house to the southeast.

Good Neighbor Tim was out in his driveway with his very nice camera to capture our Strawberry Super Moon in all its shining glory.

In this Syracuse neighborhood of Eastwood, it was spectacular.
