Look Up! Strawberry Moon Coming Friday Night

Are Strawberry Moons red or pink in color? Europeans call June's full moon the Mead Moon, the Rose Moon and the Honey Moon. 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.

How are full moons named?

Indeed, calling the honeymoon's first month of marriage can be related to this full moon.

The name Strawberry Moon originates from North America, where native tribes associated the rising of the June Moon with the blossoming of berries.

What's the best time to see it?

Awesome photos of full moon tonight in Johannesburg. This saros is on its way out, as it produced its final total lunar eclipse on August 4, 1533, and will end with a shallow penumbral on July 19, 2092.

The moon will be at its fullest (100 % full) at 3:12 p.m.

You'll have several other opportunities to revel in the view. The Lunar Eclipse 2020 is likely to last till the early hours of June 6.

The second penumbral lunar eclipse of this year is set to take place today and is expected to be visible in most parts of the world including Asia, Europe and Africa and South and East parts of America.

While the full moon will be a sight in and of itself, celestial watchers will be treated to an accompanying partial eclipse of the moon on Friday, depending on where they live.

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. Space says it would have just "tinted" the lower edge of the moon.

During a penumbral lunar eclipse, the moon only just brushes with the Earth's outer shadow (penumbra) which is why it can sometimes go unnoticed. It won't be visible in North America. But this is a special event, which leads to three eclipses. The Annular Solar Eclipse happens when the Moon is farthest from the Earth.

Astrologers believe that the Strawberry Moon is a time for healing and letting go of your workload.
