Friday 13th & The Strawberry Moon

Tonight, moon watchers will see a full moon on a Friday the 13th in the month of June, something that hasn't happened in June since 1919.  It is believed that the name "strawberry" comes from the fact that June is strawberry season, & Algonquin Native American tribes chose the name.  This is the 1st time since Oct. 13, 2000, that a full moon has occurred on a Friday the 13th of any month, & the last time it will happen until Oct. 13, 2049.
