The Old Farmer's Almanac explained the Full Moon is called a Strawberry Moon because the Algonquin tribes named it after the fruit's harvesting season in the northeastern United States. You can find a full schedule of full moons for the rest of 2020 here.
This full moon is important because it is used to fix the date of Easter, which is always the Sunday after the first full moon following the spring equinox. Meanwhile, there are two more eclipses slated to take place by July. It's starts from 19:45 SAST (or 17:45 GMT, or 01:45 on Saturday in Perth, Australia, AWST). During the maximum phase of this eclipse, the Moon turns a shade darker.
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.
The lunar eclipse 2020 will be visible to countries in the Eastern Hemisphere. This happens because the Earth comes i between the sun and the moon and casts a shadow on the moon. At mid-eclipse, the entire moon is in shadow and may appear blood red.
A lunar eclipse or Chandra Grahan occurs when the Earth obstructs the sun's light on the moon. As a result, the side of the Moon that faces the Earth is left in complete darkness. In 2020, the Hunter's Moon on October 31 will also be a blue moon because it is the second full moon to occur in October.
What is a penumbral lunar eclipse? There's no dark bite taken out of the moon. The dimming effect won't be as a dramatic as a total eclipse and will be hard to detect for the casual watcher staring up at the sky.
Unless you are a seasoned skywatcher, you may not notice the effect of the penumbral lunar eclipse. That means the Earth's shadow will dim the moon.

December 26 of 2019 seems to be really memorable and astounding for Indians, as everyone witnessed the spectacular annular solar eclipse!
"It, therefore, crosses the plane of Earth's orbit of the Sun twice per month". Some writings suggest that the time around the end of June was when honey was ripe and ready to be harvested from hives or from the wild, which made this the "sweetest" Moon. "This is not a regular total eclipse of the moon, it's not even a normal partial eclipse - it's a grade below that". Don't break up the set!
The Weather Network is predicting some slight cloud cover around that time, so if you can't catch a glimpse Friday night, the moon is expected to stick around for the next couple nights. This is probably one of the most spectacular events of the year.
"Mercury will be also visible somewhere between July 22 and 25, in the morning just before sunrise". The penumbral lunar eclipse is different from the partial and total lunar eclipse.
