How To Watch The Last Supermoon of 2021

The upcoming full moon on Thursday, June 24 will be the last supermoon of the year. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the June full moon is often referred to as the “strawberry moon”. This is not because of the color of the moon. The nickname is connected to the ripening of strawberries during this time of year in certain parts of North America. A supermoon occurs when the moon is at its closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit around the planet. Supermoons typically look larger and brighter than regular full moons. If it's too cloudy to see the moon in your area you can watch Virtual Telescope Project's livestream of the moon over Rome.
