‘Strawberry Moon’ to illuminate the night. Here’s what to know

22 Novembre, 2020, 02:11 | Auteur: Therese Cote

Before going out and looking for a full moon in the skies today, it is important to first understand what a lunar eclipse is. The color of the Moon near mid-eclipse may take on a tea-colored appearance, instead of its usual pearly, bone-white hue.

According to the space agency, the Maine Farmer's Almanac first published Native American names for the full moons in the 1930s. It gets its moniker from the time of year - North America's strawberry season.

"So June's full Moon naturally came to be known as the Strawberry Moon, a name that was universal to every tribe".

The magical full moon over East London, South Africa, last night.

What's the best time to see it?

Satin Crystals said: "Regardless of what you want to call it, the June Full Moon is about enjoying the fruits of your labor".

There are three types of eclipses: total, partial and penumbral. At 12:54 am on June 6, the eclipse will be upon its full extent.

You'll have several other opportunities to revel in the view.

The Strawberry Moon will mark the start of "eclipse" season, with upcoming events in July and November.

CNN meteorologist Judson Jones said the best time to see the unique phenomenon is while the moon is still low on your horizon. A penumbral lunar eclipse takes place when the Moon moves through the faint, outer part of Earth's shadow called the penumbra. It won't be visible in North America.

A total solar eclipse will happen on June 21 which will be visible throughout Northern Australia, Africa, and Asia.

The CosmoSapiens YouTube channel will also be showing a live stream - which you can view below - of the "strawberry moon" and partial penumbral eclipse "for stargazers experiencing bad weather or light-polluted night skies". The entire duration of the eclipse is 3 hours 18 minutes and 13 seconds. 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.

Filipinos can witness a penumbral lunar eclipse on Saturday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.
