A full "Strawberry Moon" rises behind St Michael's Mount in Marazion near Penzance on June 28, 2018 in Cornwall, England.

However, thunderstorms and partially cloudy skies may prevent viewing in some places in the United States, including Staten Island.

The US space agency NASA said: "The next Full Moon will be on Monday morning, June 17, 2019, appearing "opposite" the Sun - in Earth-based longitude- at 4.31am EDT (9.30am GMT)".

However, the moon will look full for about a day or two surrounding the peak, according to the Farmers' Almanac. According to the Farmer's Almanac, why this one is named the Strawberry Moon is being it is the peak time for harvesting strawberries. In Europe, you may hear it called the Honey Moon, Mead Moon or the Full Rose Moon.

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. For those in the Pacific time zone in the West Coast, the peak will happen at 1:30 a.m.

The 17 illnesses reported so far in the E. coli outbreak includes one case in New Jersey, two in Pennsylvania and five in NY . They begin, on average, three to four days after ingesting the bacteria and most people recover in about a week.

In San Luis Obispo and Fresno in California, the moon will rise at 7:55 p.m. Sunday, according to timeanddate.com. It must also be noted that at the time of a total lunar eclipse when the Moon hides under the shadow of the Earth, it gets a bold reddish hue which we refer to as the Blood Moon.

This moon has different names in different pieces of the world. Not just the moon but for others with a keen eye for planetary sights could also spot fellow planets like Jupiter.

The next full moon after the Strawberry Moon is on July 16.

Sky watchers and moon fanatics are in for a treat as this month's full moon made a three-night appearance. The Moon is also sometimes known as the Ripe Corn Moon or the Middle of Summer Moon.

On the morning of the full Moon, Jupiter will appear in the southwest and the planet Saturn will appear in the south-southeast.
