海神庙上空的草莓月

说明:你昨晚看到满月了吗?如果没有,今晚的满月几乎和昨晚一样美丽。因为满月正对着太阳,所以当太阳没有出现时,满月在天空中是可见的,如果天气许可的话,应该几乎一整夜都能看到。六月的满月被昵称为草莓月,它是以那时地球北半球部分地区开始成熟的野生草莓而命名的。然而,全世界不同的文化赋予了这轮满月不同的名称,包括蜜月和玫瑰月。在这幅昨天从希腊.苏尼翁海岬拍摄的特征影像中,前景是具有2400年历史的海神庙。下个月将是人类首次登月的50周年纪念日。

Strawberry Moon over the Temple of Poseidon

Explanation: Did you see the full moon last night? If not, tonight’s nearly full moon should be almost as good. Because full moons are opposite the Sun, they are visible in the sky when the Sun is not — which should be nearly all night long tonight, clouds permitting. One nickname for June’s full moon is the Strawberry Moon, named for when wild strawberries start to ripen in parts of Earth’s northern hemisphere. Different cultures around the globe give this full moon different names, though, including Honey Moon and Rose Moon. In the foreground of this featured image, taken yesterday in Cape Sounion, Greece, is the 2,400 year-old Temple of Poseidon. Next month will the 50th anniversary of the time humans first landed on the Moon.
