The sweetest moon of the year is finally ripe for viewing.

If you look to the sky Sunday night, you'll likely catch the full strawberry moon hanging over the United States.

The lunar occurrence won't actually look like a piece of fruit, however, in the US, the Algonquin tribe used this full moon as a time clock to harvest strawberries in northeastern North America, according to the Farmers' Almanac.

The moon will be almost full on Sunday night, and the best time to see the moon is when it's low on the horizon, according to CNN.

Instead, the native Algonquin tribe came up with the moniker to mark the short season for harvesting strawberries each June, according to the Farmers' Almanac, which started listing Indian moon names in the 1930s.

"This summer should be a great time for Jupiter and Saturn watching, especially with a backyard telescope", NASA said. Jupiter is close enough to Earth this June that it's visible to the naked eye all month. Venus will be washed out by the sunrise though, making Jupiter the planet to look for.

The next full moon will be July 16. This can happen when the full moon nearest to the summer solstice shines through more of the Earth's atmosphere than at other times of the year, according to NASA.
