The Moon tonight has a special name, "Strawberry Moon." The Strawberry Moon was given its name because Native American tribes used it as their signal that it was time to start harvesting ripe strawberries. The Strawberry Moon is exceptionally colorful and will be our last full Moon until July 5 when the Buck Moon will be on full display. The Buck Moon, by the way, signals when the new antlers of buck deer emerge from their foreheads.
