Tonight, for the first time since June 1967,  a full “strawberry” moon will shine during the summer solstice — the longest day of the year.

The Strawberry Moon’s name originates from the collection of strawberries by Native American Algonquin tribes, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.

The moon will rise at 8:41 p.m. Eastern time, and viewers will be able to see an event that occurs only once every half-century.
