ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — You're not alone in thinking the moon has been bigger and brighter recently: It's Strawberry Moon season.
No, it doesn't look as red as a strawberry -- it gets its name because it heralded the start for some Native American tribes to begin gathering wild strawberries, per Old Farmer's Almanac -- but it'll be plenty stunning all by itself.
It'll appear low in the eastern sky around sunset. Because of such a low arc, it'll give off a yellowish tint.
Although the full moon was earlier Monday morning, you'll still get a good view for the next night or so.
Don't forget about Jupiter: You don't need a telescope to catch the Gas Giant all month long, with it being big and bright at about dusk and remaining visible all night, NASA said.
