Full moon, summer solstice coincide for first time in 70 years

Go outside and look at the moon, known as the Strawberry Moon. It’s huge on this first night of summer — the first time in 70 years that a full moon has occurred on the summer solstice:

Today marks a special day for astronomy enthusiasts. The summer solstice and June’s strawberry moon will coincide for the first time in nearly 70 years.

Go look at it. Chances are you won’t be around when/if it returns in 70 years.
