A Super Moon coloring page brought to you this week by strawberries and roses. And a wee strawberry fairy.
The June full moon is called the Strawberry Moon here in the United States. In Europe, it’s called the Rose moon because strawberries aren’t a native fruit in the Old Country. Did you know the majority of berry fruits only grow in the Americas? Can you name other foods that are native to the Americas but now grow in other continents?
Why a Super Moon coloring page?
The perigee full moon, which happens once every 14 months, is happening next weekend, June 23. On that day, the moon will appear bigger and brighter, and be closer to Earth than it’s been all year — a total of 221,824 miles away, which is roughly 30,000 miles closer than when it’s at its farthest.
