Summer Solstice Moon

I looked up in the sky, and saw this. I had forgotten that this is the Summer Solstice, the first day of summer!

It was just rising and peeping over the trees



It's unusual to have a full moon on the first day of summer. In fact, I don't think there has been one in 70 years. This June moon is called The Strawberry moon, for obvious reasons.

He makes the moon wax and wane, putting it through its phases. He draws the horizon out over the ocean, sets a boundary between light and darkness.”

I HAD READ ABOUT IT AND WAS GOING TO TRY AND SEE IT. HOWEVER, MY MIND DID NOT STAY ON IT LONE ENOUGH AND MISSED IT. YOU DID SUPER JOB ON CAPTURING IT.
