A ‘Strawberry Supermoon’ will light up the night sky on Tuesday (June 14).
The phenomenon gets its name from the Algonquin tribe, who named it after the strawberry harvesting season. Supermoons appear when the moon is full and at its closest orbital distance to Earth.
The moon will be both in its full phase and its closest point in orbit around Earth at 7:52 am ET. It is the first of two consecutive supermoons to be seen in 2022.
