Had some good moons recently:

Never heard of "Strawberry Moon", we did have "blackberry week" for the school holidays
at this time of year.

Any other names for the Moon In June?

Title Solar eruption larger than Earth
Released 01/08/2016 11:13 am
Copyright SOHO (ESA & NASA)
Description
A gigantic ribbon of hot gas bursts upwards from the Sun, guided by a giant loop of invisible magnetism. This remarkable image was captured on 27 July 1999 by SOHO, the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory. Earth is superimposed for comparison and shows that from top to bottom the loop of gas, or prominence, extends about 35 times the diameter of our planet into space.

Astronomers reveal first image of the black hole at the heart of our galaxy eso2208-eht-mwh.jpg


Astronomers have unveiled the first image of the supermassive black hole at the centre of our own Milky Way galaxy. This result provides overwhelming evidence that the object is indeed a black hole and yields valuable clues about the workings of such giants, which are thought to reside at the centre of most galaxies. The image was produced by a global research team called the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) Collaboration, using observations from a worldwide network of radio telescopes.
