If you look up to the sky over the next couple of nights, you should be able to see the Strawberry Moon. This is the full moon for the month of June and it will be the last supermoon of 2021! It peaks Thursday at 11:40 a.m. As a supermoon it is closes in orbit to Earth, it will look larger and brighter than other full moons.
