How to Watch the 'Strawberry Moon' on Friday

21 Novembre, 2020, 19:59 | Auteur: Therese Cote

The first lunar eclipse was seen on January 10 and now the second penumbral lunar eclipse will be visible on the intervening night of June 5-6.

The Partial Solar Eclipse, occurs when the Moon, Sun, and the Earth are not in straight line but the Moon came in between the Sun and the Earth partially.

Nigel Riley photographed the Strawberry Full Moon rising over the lighthouses last night at Kalk Bay harbour.

In Europe, NASA said the full moon has been called the Mead Moon or the Honey Moon after the fermented drink. "The name comes from the relatively short season for harvesting strawberries in the north-eastern United States".

On 21 June there'll be an eclipse of the sun, the first solar eclipse this year.

If you're wondering when the best time is to see the Strawberry Moon in your town, you can use this tool from the Farmer's Almanac.

"When the moon is low on the horizon, it allows you to capture the view with objects in the foreground, making the moon appear bigger", Jones explained. It won't be visible in North America.

The eclipse was only visible in parts of the world, including parts of Africa, Europe, Asia and Australia... but excluding the USA. The reason for this is that its central one - the June 20 annular eclipse - is very central, very close to the season's theoretical midst.

The "strawberry moon" got its name from the Algonquin tribes of Native Americans.

For those still reeling from the highs of seeing Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken launched into orbit, and wanting to enjoy another live space event, tonight's "strawberry moon" and partial penumbral eclipse might do the trick. It will encompass the months of November and December.
