The minimoon occurs once a year when the moon is at its furthest point in its orbit from the Earth.

Historic Algonquin Native American tribes established the name of the Strawberry Full Moon because of the importance of strawberries in their culture, as the leaves and roots were often used for medical treatment. "So if you've never had an opportunity to see or identify Saturn with the naked eye, just look for a reasonably bright point of light about four or five moon-widths away from the full moon itself". This means it will have more atmosphere between it and Earth than usual when the moon's overhead, which is what causes it to have a slight gold color, the Old Farmer's Almanac says.

Will it be a good night for moon gazing? Super moons can appear bigger in the sky because of their proximity to Earth in their orbit at that time. So if you're planning on looking up at the moon, notice the bright-looking object close to the moon.
