June’s Full “Strawberry” Moon might not be red, but its companion this evening certainly is. The reddish-colored star Antares appears just to the right of the Moon as darkness follows the twilight by 10 o’clock, climbing into the southeast, but not climbing very high. June’s Full Moon, opposite from the Sun, travels low over the southern horizon tonight.
