The upcoming weekend will feature the strawberry moon, illuminating the night sky.

The full moon will rise after sunset in the southeast direction and reach peak illumination at 11:42 p.m. ET on Saturday, remaining full for three days.

The name "strawberry moon" originates from Native American tribes, symbolizing the ripening of June-bearing strawberries.

Additionally, observers in certain regions, including Argentina and various time zones across North America, Europe, Africa, Asia,

and Australia, will witness Antares, the brightest star in the Scorpius constellation, near the moon.

Venus and Mars will also be visible near the horizon at dusk on Saturday.

Different regions have assigned their own names to the June moon, such as the Europeans' honey moon and the Hindu celebration of Vat Purnima.

This year will see 13 full moons, including two supermoons in August, which are larger and closer to Earth.
