Stargazers watching the strawberry moon rise may also want to look for Saturn, to the south of the full moon.

A plane flies in front of a full moon.

It is also known as the Honey Moon and Mead Moon, in case you need any other edible inspiration. Like numerous names for full moons, this one dates back to Native Americans, in this case to the Algonquin, the first native peoples encountered by European settlers in the New World. NASA says the Strawberry Moon gets its name from the Algonquin tribe due to the "relatively short season for harvesting strawberries in northeastern North America".

On the rare occasion a second full moon takes place in one calendar month, it is known as a Blue Moon.

And while the full moon will only last the day, Saturn will be visible in the night sky for several more months.

Police investigating the crime say that there are likely six people involved in the murder of Lesandro Guzman-Feliz. On Monday night, a huge vigil attracting hundreds was held outside, while thousands attended a wake for the boy .

In addition to Saturn's mesmerising appearance in the sky, the astronomers still are witnessing a breathtaking Jupiter's view in this month itself. Although you can look at the moon when it's high in the sky, you will have trouble if the skies are completely clear because of glare.

Adding to the excitement will be a full moon in the early morning hours Thursday. It will rise in the east around sunset and slowly make its way across the sky before setting in the west around sunrise. In Los Angeles moonrise will occur at 7:51 p.m., and sunset at 8:08 p.m.

The exact peak of the strawberry moon will be at 12:53 EST on Friday, according to Bustle, but the moon should appear similar in fullness to the human eye at any time of the night.

Look for the Strawberry Moon at dusk, and keep looking for 15 minutes to give the Earth time to rotate a little to reveal the full moon.
