MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- The arrival of the summer solstice in Mamaroneck came with a rare strawberry moon on Monday, June 20.

A strawberry moon is the phenomenon when a full moon takes place on the summer solstice.

According to EarthSky, the last time a full moon fell on a summer solstice was the "Summer of Love" back in 1967.

Daily Voice reader Mary Oliansky Zaccagnino captured this photo of the once in a generation strawberry moon shining over Mamaroneck's Harbor Island.
