The Strawberry Moon is the sixth of this year’s 12 named Full Moon phases.
The Strawberry Moon will make its appearance just one month after the so-called Flower Moon peaked in May.
The full moon will be in the night sky on the evening of Monday 17 June.
While the moon will technically be at its fullest at 9.30 am on that day, it won’t be visible at all in the sky, having previously set at around 4.54am.
It will rise again at around 9.30pm and won’t set again until about 5.39am the next morning, meaning it will be visible in all its glory throughout the night – clear skies permitting of course.
But while astronomy fans will be patiently waiting to see the phenomenon, some doomsday preachers will be waiting for the world to end.
Tim Henderson, who monitors events that could signal the end of mankind, believes the Rapture starts with the Strawberry Moon tomorrow.
The Rapture is an event many Christians believe marks the return of the son of God – and all the believers will disappear from Earth up to Heaven in the “twinkling of an eye”.
He explained a number of factors had allowed him to pinpoint the end of times – which coincides with the Strawberry Moon.
“Things are happening and the Lord had regained for things to happen,” he explained.
“This 17th, this strawberry Moon, this time of Harvest, and the number 17 meaning victory and perfection … I believe our bridegroom is coming for the bride very very very soon.
“I am so excited about the season we’re in and we have the privilege of occupying and redeeming the time looking up for our redemption draws nigh and sharing the Gospel of Grace.
“Things are happening and the Lord had regained for things to happen”
“I’m going to share John 3:16 ‘For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.’
“I am so grateful for the blood of Jesus that is shed on the cross of cavalry to pay the debt, the random price for my sins once and for all.”
Responding to Tim’s claims, one person wrote: “Over a year ago I was given the number 17 (specifically 17th day) by God. My heart always beats a bit faster around the 17th of the month! The 17th day was also when Noah and family were shut in the ark, I believe. Such amazing times. God bless you all brothers and sisters! (sic)”
Another said: “I’m breaking down guys. Be really great to get out of here soon and know that’s why the attacks are so great… because it’s so close.”
