IT only occurs once in a lifetime - and it happens tonight.

The Strawberry Moon appears every year - marking the start of the strawberry picking season - but only every 70 years does it coincide with the Summer Solstice.

Other than its significant timing, though, it’s just like any other full moon.

Will we get to see it in Edinburgh? According to The Weather Channel forecast - yes - with clear skies predicted from 8pm through to midnight.

Sunset will be at 10.02pm.
