Today I was able to capture the “Strawberry Moon”. A Strawberry Moon according to the Farmer’s Almanac is the June Full Moon.  However, this year this Full Moon falls on one of the Solstices, which makes it a very rare event. It has been almost 70 years since this happened and I read it was in 1946. Since the horizon at the house is relative high, I went two miles down the street where I captured the Ingress of the Mercury transit and waited for the Moon to come up. And it was beautiful, deep orange, but ut changed very rapidly as the moon rose. So here two images with the tree line in the background.
