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

"It is not going to be very visible, since it is a penumbral eclipse; which means only a diffused shadow will fall on the moon".

Lunar eclipses take place when the shadow of the Earth blocks the light from the sun, and there are three types: total, partial, and penumbral. The full moon or the Strawberry Moon will occur on June 5 at 3:12pm EDT (June 6 at 12:42am IST) and lunar enthusiasts in India will be able to watch it with their naked eyes. This makes it the first full moon of summer, which began on June 1.

NASA said the next full moon Friday afternoon will create a Strawberry Moon.

According to The Old Farmer 's Almanac, this full moon was their warning to pick wild strawberry. Space says it would have just "tinted" the lower edge of the moon. That is because of the June marriage custom, or because the Honey Moon is considered the year's "sweetest" moon, NASA explained.

"For spacecraft at the moon such as the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, the reduction in solar power is noticeable", the agency wrote in the statement.

Pfizer/BioNTech are first coronavirus vaccine makers to seek U.S. authorization
Instead, officials indicated they were considering using expanded access protocols to allow the vaccines to be used. In my opinion, safety is not compromised by the speed of vaccine development and emergency use authorization.

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. It won't be visible in North America.

Apart from Pakistan, the eclipse would also be visible from much of Europe and Asia, Australia, Africa, South America, Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Ocean and Antarctica. There will have another penumbral lunar eclipse on November 30 and a total solar eclipse through the southern portions of Chile and Argentina on December 14 at the next eclipse season.

Usually, there are two eclipses in an eclipse season-one of the sun and one of the moon.

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