On the night of the 24 June, the final supermoon of the year was captured by photographers around the world. At this time, Earth’s natural satellite appears bigger and brighter in the night sky.

Each month, the full Moon has a different name. The Strawberry Moon is said to have been so named because it coincides with the season for harvesting the fruit in North America.
