But it may not be the celestial spectacle it's hyped up to be, according to one expert. Total, partial and penumbral are the three types of lunar eclipses. Notably, it will be second of the four penumbral lunar Eclipse of 2020.
The moon's exact moment of fullness happens at 3:12 p.m. EDT (19:12 UTC) on Friday, according to NASA. The color of the Moon near mid-eclipse may take on a tea-colored appearance, instead of its usual pearly, bone-white hue.
Would you notice anything was amiss with the Moon during mid-penumbral eclipse, if you didn't know better?
Most people believe that during a lunar eclipse a simple cut will not heal properly and a scar will be left forever.
A full moon occurs when the moon is located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun, so that its face is fully illuminated.
What is a Strawberry Moon?
Australians will be treated to a spectacular "Strawberry Moon" lunar eclipse in the early hours of Saturday. It certainly sounds delicious!
'The moon won't disappear it'll just go dimmer, so what we'll really see is a dimmed full moon. So, when the full moon rises in June, many saw it as a sign their gardens were reaching their peak. Lunar eclipses occur on full moon days when the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon, which results in obstructing some or all of the Sun's light from reaching the Moon.
The next two lunar eclipses will be visible on July 4-5 and November 29-30.
The news isn't great for astronomy fans.
This Strawberry Moon Eclipse will start this year's "eclipse season". Full moon names used to help people track the seasons.
Penumbral eclipses are hard to observe, especially during the early and late stages. Seen from Australia, Asia and Africa, 57 per cent of the Strawberry Moon will be covered by Earth's penumbra - its outer, fuzzy shadow in space. "And in this one, it affects only half the Moon's disc anyway.so there's really not much to see". Eastern on Friday afternoon, but you won't be able to see it until later in the evening.
"We have twilight [in Sydney] before the end of the eclipse, so Western Australia is going to get a longer view of the eclipse - but nothing with change the fact that it's a fairly unspectacular event".
