June's full moon is named for the fact that it's the best time of the year for ripening strawberries, and it also has a couple of names in the Honey Moon, Mead Moon and the Full Rose Moon.

The planet will reach opposition just a day before we are set to see the Full Moon.

Saturn will be closest to the Earth on Wednesday, making it a great opportunity to view and see the planet in detail.

The moon won't necessarily look like a strawberry, but it can take on a reddish tint and appear unnaturally large.

In addition to Saturn's mesmerising appearance in the sky, the astronomers still are witnessing a breathtaking Jupiter's view in this month itself.

Stargazers are advised to head into a park or the countryside, which will provide the clearest sight of the moon. When it's in its full phase, the moon is incredibly bright and nearly impossible to look at for more than a few seconds.

The planet will be brighter than any other time of year and will be visible all night long on Wednesday June 27.

A slightly smaller strawberry moon is expected Thursday night as well, he said.

A full moon occurs when the Earth is directly positioned between the moon and the sun, and typically occurs once in a calendar month. But this month's Moon cycle may have you hankering for a snack. The June "strawberry moon" won't actually look like the famed fruit, but is so-called because it's thought to have been a signal to Algonquin tribes to start gathering ripe wild strawberries.

The next full moon will be the Blood Moon on July 27, which will also coincide with a total lunar eclipse in which the moon turns red.

Visible on October 24 will be the Hunters Moon, with the Beaver's Moon appearing on November 23.
