Strawberry Moon Rises Over St Michael's Mount

Summer's First Full Moon: Incredible Photos

From Cornwall to California, stunning shots of this week's lunar splendor.

Around the world during this last week of June, the moon stunned anyone who looked up at the sky. Some have called the first full moon of summer the Strawberry Moon (not for its color, but after the name the Algonquin tribes of North America once gave it to mark the peak of strawberry-picking season); others have quibbled about its exact designation. But whatever you call it, it was awe-inspiring.
