On Wednesday night the moon is near Saturn. Saturn is also at opposition on this

But the best time to see it isn't actually when it's highest in the sky (aka at its brightest) since it'll be too bright to look at for too long. There are several fires in Eastern Washington, including one near Vantage, but Dery said there likely aren't enough to color the moon.

This is the closest to Earth that Saturn will be this year as Saturn's rotational axis will now pull the planet away.

On the night of Thursday, June 28, a strawberry moon will illuminate the sky until the morning of Friday, June 29.

Of course, the moon won't exude the deep, juicy red colour of a ripe strawberry. Both the Moon and Saturn will be in Sagittarius.

So starting Tuesday night, head outside with a telescope or binoculars if you can and look for Saturn shining in the east relatively close to the big moon.

Hot on the heels of the summer solstice, June's full Strawberry Moon - appearing at the beginning of the sunniest and warmest months of the year - is slightly unusual this month.

Trump on Tuesday once again hit out at countries that had placed tariffs on USA goods, and threatened to impose even more tariffs. The EU riposted last week against emblematic American exports in response to United States tariffs on steel and aluminium.

This will make it easy for people of all ages to spot Saturn among a sea of countless stars in the night sky.

It won't appear red with speckles of black seeds, but the first full moon of summer will take on a reddish tint and appear unnaturally large.

Cloud-free conditions will lead to uninterrupted views of Saturn for much of the western and central US on Wednesday night.

When is the Full Strawberry Moon?

According to folklore, days following the New and Full Moons are most likely to be rainy or stormy. It will not look significantly different than any other full moon.

"Cloud-free conditions will lead to uninterrupted views of Saturn for much of the western and central United States on Wednesday night", the website reports.
