Last chance to see the Strawberry Moon

Last night was the appearance of the Full Strawberry Moon that is still hanging in the sky this morning. It is the last super moon of 2021. The moon is at its closest point to Earth in its orbit, looking slightly bigger and brighter than normal. It has also inspired Krispy Kreme to create a special donut in its honor. We’ll see it again next summer solstice.
