Get set for stunning strawberry moon

Get set for stunning strawberry moon”

Here's a look at how the strawberry moon appeared during what is also named as the Strawberry Moon Eclipse.

The full Strawberry Moon will occur Friday (June 5) at 3:12 p.m. EDT. An old European name for this final spring full moon, meanwhile, is the "mead moon" or the "honey moon", since people considered honey to be the sweetest during June.

A penumbral eclipse is hard to distinguish from the normal Full Moon as the penumbra is much fainter than the dark core of the Earth's shadow.

According to the Almanac, the name originates from Algonquin tribes in eastern North America who considered this moon to be a sign to start gathering the ripening wild strawberries.

Although called "Strawberry Moon", Zahra explained that no change will be observed and the moon will look the same with the moment of complete full moon at 11.12pm UAE time (7:12pm GMT). Low and to the southeast, you'll be seeing the full moon.

For part of the world, Friday night will come with an added bonus: the chance to witness a penumbral lunar eclipse. According to TimeandDate.com, in the years when a 13th full moon would sneak in - that would be your Blue Moon.

No matter what people may believe about the full moon and the eclipse, these are sky events many people would want to watch out for before the annular solar eclipse on June 21. This happens because the Earth comes i between the sun and the moon and casts a shadow on the moon. During a total lunar eclipse, the Earth is able to completely block out the Sun's light, pulling the Moon into complete darkness. Other times the moon seems to disappear entirely.

There was also a slight lunar eclipse as Earth begins what's called an "Eclipse Season"! The outer ring shows what we see on the Earth during each corresponding part of the moon's orbit. Combined, they make an up this year's eclipse season.

The penumbral Thunder Moon eclipse will be visible from North America, South America and parts of Africa on 4 July 2020.

Throughout history, eclipses have inspired awe and even fear.
