Kiwis have been treated to amazing views of the annual ‘strawberry moon’ rises.
A strawberry moon – otherwise known as the Mead Moon, Rose Moon or Thunder Moon – is the name given to the full moon in June. The sixth full moon of the year.
This year it rose on Saturday, resulting in some spectaular views. The moon marks the start of the eclipse season.
Sorry to disappoint you but, despite the name, the moon won’t look like a strawberry or its colours.
The name relates to the time when wild strawberries are ripe in the northern hemisphere.
