It is that time again – June’s full moon is overnight tonight (technically the moment is tomorrow morning), so there will be good viewing (and photographing) of it tonight, tomorrow morning, and tomorrow evening. Moonrise tonight is at 7:22 pm (with sunset at 8:18 pm, all times for midcoast Maine), moonset tomorrow is 5:15 am, and moonrise tomorrow is 8:16 pm.
Looking back through my files, I was surprised to see I only had one really good June for photographing for my Adventures in the Celestial Mechanics series. I’ll share 4 photographs from June 2013 here in this post of the Summer Moon. Other popular names for the June full moon are the Rose Moon and Flower Moon, for reasons that are likely obvious if you are in North America.
