Last night, sky gazers were treated to a rare sight: a Strawberry Moon falling on the summer solstice. This full moon, which always falls in June, is so-named because, according to Farmer's Almanac, "the Algonquin tribes knew it as a signal to gather ripening fruit." The Strawberry Moon fell on the summer solstice in 1948, and won't fall on the solstice again until 2062. It inspired many people to go outside and snap photos—a selection of which we've gathered below.
