Other names for the Strawberry Moon include the Mead Moon or the Honey Moon - avid skywatcher's are divided on if the Honey Moon name comes from the time when nectar is at its sweetest or if it follows the old tradition of marrying in May and June.

This year, the Moon will appear full for about three days, from Saturday night till Tuesday morning. This full moon is believed to be connected to the word "honeymoon", since the month of June is a popular time for people to get married and go on vacation.

Whatever the meaning of the phenomenon, there were those who view the annual sight as an Apocalypse sign and a sacred day for prayer.

A so-called "Strawberry Moon" will be visible over Leeds on Monday.

After the Strawberry Moon lights up the night skies, the next full moon to rise is the Buck Moon in July, which will peak in its brightness on 16 July.
