Did you notice how bright the moon was last night and tonight? Get ready for the biggest full moon of the year to brighten the night skies. The Strawberry Supermoon happens in the month of June’s full moon. It is also known as honey moon and rose moon. The moon have a pinkish color, but this is not why the name was given. The name was given by the Algonquin Native American tribe in the northeastern U.S. and eastern Canada, describing the short strawberry harvesting season in the region. Full moons (or new moons) happen every 29.5 days, but Supermoons are more rare and happen only when the moon closely coincides with the perigee (the point in the orbit of the moon or a satellite at which it is nearest to the earth). Supermoons appear bigger and more luminous than the “ordinary” Full Moons. They are 6.9% larger and 16% brighter.
To better understand the 2022 Strawberry Supermoon, please refer to the excerpt from wikipedia, in italics, below:

At around 7:24 p.m. EST, the moon will come within 222,238 miles (357,658 kilometers) of Earth (about 16,000 miles closer than its average distance) and could be about 7 percent larger and 15 percent brighter than a regular full moon.
