It got its nickname from the Algonquin Indian tribe because it signaled the best time to pick strawberries. According to EarthSky the mini moon will hit its fullest point while it's about 30,000 miles farther from Earth than the year's closest new moon on May 25.

June's full moon is often called the strawberry moon.

The moon's orbit around the Earth is not in a flawless circle, so some months a full moon is closer to our planet than it is in other months.

The strawberry moon actually hit its fullest point on Friday morning - at 8:10 a.m. CDT on June 9 - but it will still appear almost full on Friday night, according to astronomers. When it's closest to Earth, the full moon is known as a "supermoon".

The gap actually might seem only about half that distance, which happens because the moon looks twice its real size to the eye, looking like it subtends a full 1 degree as compared to its actual size of half a degree.

The moon will be fullest during daylight Friday, which is why the best time to see it will be the early morning hours after midnight. The Strawberry Moon will set at 7:21 a.m. The full moon will be the smallest full moon of the year, which is what earned the moon the "mini" title as well. It will be the sixth full moon on the 2017 lunar calendar and the last full moon of the spring season in the northern hemisphere.
