Jim Fulcher: June’s Spectacular Full Moon Will Be Extra Sweet, Here’s Why

The Strawberry Supermoon will become full at 7:51 a.m. Eastern on June 14, according to Time and Date.

However, that’s not the time to look for the Strawberry Supermoon. Instead, you’ll want to watch the moon rise above the horizon just after sunset. You can use The Old Farmer’s Almanac’s Moonrise and Moonset Calculator to see when the moon will rise in your area on June 14 — or any other time, for that matter. It can be found here.

Here’s why you’ll want to see the moon rise: When the moon is low in the sky, it appears bigger and brighter than when it’s high in the sky, due to what’s called the “Moon Illusion,” Time and Date explains
