The full moon lit up just a little brighter this weekend. The moon was positioned a little lower in the northern hemisphere, giving off a warmer light, and looking more yellow and orange, like a sunset. It was supposedly given the name "strawberry moon" because it was used by native americans to mark the ripening of strawberries, which are ready to be picked in June.
FRENCH SPELLING BEE
We've been covering the spelling bee here in the U.S., but just across the ocean, France organized the largest spelling and grammar contest in the world yesterday. More than 5,000 people participated in the event that took place in the middle of Paris' iconic Champs-Élysées. The competition had three rounds with about 1,700 people in each. In the first round, participants tried to transcribe an excerpt from a short story by a 19th century author, and in the second and third rounds , they had to transcribe a modern short story about rugby.
