The next full moon in June is known as the Strawberry Moon, or Mead Moon, because of its connection to the popular berry's harvest season. They called the full Moon that appeared at this time the "Rose Moon".

The Strawberry Moon followed May's Flower Moon, named for the abundant blooming that month, before July's Full Buck Moon, marking the month buck deers' antlers usually emerge, according to the Almanac. This tasty-sounding name might be linked to the honey harvest, which typically took place after the Summer Solstice in June.

The Strawberry Moon also has a couple of other nicknames, including the Honey Moon, the Mead Moon, and the Rose Moon, the New York Post noted. Eastern time and about 1:30 a.m.

In San Luis Obispo and Fresno in California, the moon will rise at 7:55 p.m. Sunday, according to timeanddate.com. It will also be the lowest full moon of the year, especially in Washington, D.C. on Monday where the moon will only be 29.1 degrees above the horizon. "As it appears on the southeastern horizon around sunset, it will be a delicate shade of orange, which eventually becomes a brighter yellow, brightening still as it rises above the horizon", according to Forbes.

Will the moon look like in slight pinkish colour? Not just the moon but for others with a keen eye for planetary sights could also spot fellow planets like Jupiter. Sadly, this doesn't mean the moon will be red - or even pinkish. This is when the Moon hides in the Earth's shadow.

The next full moon after the Strawberry Moon is on July 16.

The moon will technically be at its fullest at 9.30pm, and won't set until 5.39am on Tuesday.

On the morning of the full Moon, Jupiter will appear in the southwest and the planet Saturn will appear in the south-southeast.

According to long-running American periodical Farmer's Almanac, this is the full list of the year's moon names.
