Strawberry Moon

On June 24, 2021, there will be a beautiful Strawberry Moon in the celestial sky; it is going to be a full moon, too. You might think it’s called a Strawberry Moon because of its color, but you would be wrong.

Why is it called a Strawberry Moon?

A Strawberry Moon might look slightly red in the night sky, but that is not where it got its name. Strawberries in the Northeast U.S. have an abridged growing season with most of the growth occurring in June, hence the name Strawberry Moon.

Where is the best place to view this uniquely named Moon?

Each month’s full moon has a particular name. The best place for our guests to view them is our beautiful moonlit rooftop bar. Summer is here, and let’s finally have some local fun at the Saint Louis boutique Moonrise Hotel.
