Exciting Celestial Event to Grace Iowa Skies After 18-Year Wait

Every couple of decades, sky gazers are treated to a remarkable sight. This month, on June 21st, Iowans will have the chance to witness a rare occurrence known as the Strawberry Moon. Despite its name, the moon won’t actually appear red in color. The term “Strawberry Moon” was coined by the Native American Algonquin tribes, who used it to mark the ripening of June berries.

The Strawberry Moon, which began its new phase on June 6th, will be visible towards the southeast horizon. As it rises, it will appear larger and have a golden hue. This unique phenomenon is occurring alongside the summer solstice, making it even more special. For those looking to catch a glimpse of the Strawberry Moon at its peak illumination, step outside around 9:08 pm on June 21st.

In addition to being the most colorful moon of the year, the Strawberry Moon is also known as the Rose Moon or Hot Moon by tribes in regions where strawberries do not grow. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to witness this celestial event.
