Full Moon In June is the Solstice, too!

This is the first full moon in the sign of Sagittarius to fall on the June solstice since the year 1967!

According to Earth Sky News,  although the full moon and solstice happen at the same instant all around the world, the clock reading differs by time zone. At U.S. time zones, the moon turns precisely full on June 20 at 7:02 a.m. EDT, 6:02 a.m. CDT, 5:02 a.m. MDT and 4:02 a.m. PDT. 

This June Moon has many names in ancient cultures.  Ancient Full Moon Names for June are: Moon When Berries Are Ripe, the Dyan Moon, Moon of Horses, Planting Moon, Windy Moon, Green Corn Moon, Lotus Moon and Rose Moon.  Think about those while you view this special moon!
