165/365: Tuesday, June 14, 2011: Sabik and the Strawberry Moon

SONY SLT-A55V | 75mm F4 1/2 ISO800 DSC09243

 

The full moon in the late spring of June was called the Flower Moon by the English, the Strawberry Moon by the Algonquian, and by other peoples as the Honey Moon, the Rose Moon, the Hot Moon, and the Planting Moon.

 

Just visible in the upper left corner, Eta Ophiuchi (η Oph, η Ophiuchi) is a star in the constellation Ophiuchus. It also has the traditional name Sabik.
