June's full moon comes on the same day as the summer solstice.  This month's strawberry moon will have an added bonus -- it will fall on the same day as the 2016 summer solstice for the first time in decades.  A strawberry moon is another name for June's full moon.  The June solstice is often used to mark the first day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. Don't worry about missing the moon at its most full, however. It will appear almost as big the night before and after it hits its peak because it will remain more or less opposite the sun, according to astronomers.
