  • Chandra Grahan June 2020: Date, time, where and how to watch the strawberry moon eclipse

The lunar show begins at 1:45 p.m. EDT (17:45 UTC), but to catch the maximum eclipse, tune in at 3:24 p.m. EDT (19:24 UTC), according to, which explained that "the moon is below the horizon during this eclipse, so it is not possible to view it in NY".

Whatever be the reason and the superstition, people in Africa, Australia, Asia and Europe will witness a penumbral lunar eclipse on June 5, 2020.

This year, Lunar eclipse will be observed for around 3 hours 18 minutes. The next two penumbral lunar eclipses will occur on July 5 and November 30 respectively. However, in a penumbral lunar eclipse, the three celestial bodies are not in a straight line. At most, expect to see a slight shading on the southern limb of the Moon at maximum eclipse. An eclipse season occurs when we have a syzygy, aligning the Sun, Earth and the nodes where the Moon's orbit intersects the ecliptic plane. The effect is so subtle that it is almost imperceptible.

Add a stunning "Strawberry Moon Eclipse" and a "Ring of Fire" annular solar eclipse (for some parts of the world only) and you've got yourself the ideal month for moon-gazing.

"Earth's penumbral shadow forms a diverging cone that expands into space in the anti-solar direction", NASA explains.

'The moon won't disappear it'll just go dimmer, so what we'll really see is a dimmed full moon.

The Strawberry Moon is expected to reach its peak illumination at 7:12 p.m. UTC, shortly before the peak of the penumbral eclipse. In the process of lunar eclipse, it is called Chandra Malinya and penubra. It's also known as a "hot moon" because of June's typically balmy temperatures and "rose moon" after all the buds set to open this month.

"With the moon also particularly low in the sky this month, it's sure to dominate - and even be visible in the afternoon and early evening", science contributor Jamie Carter wrote in Forbes. The eclipse marks the start of the second eclipse season in 2020, and will occur from 5.45 p.m. UT (1.45 p.m ET) to 9.04 p.m. UT (5.04 p.m. ET) on June 5.
