Fear not; said Moon is actually the first astronomical draw for June 2020, as this coming weekend's Full Moon marks the start of second eclipse season for 2020, with a penumbral lunar eclipse.
Clear skies are expected throughout the night.
Time and Date explained that according to some sources, a European name for this early summer month was Rose Moon, and another was Hot Moon, for the beginning of the summer heat. That is because of the June marriage custom, or because the Honey Moon is considered the year's "sweetest" moon, NASA explained.
A full "strawberry moon" is on the horizon.
In Florida, the 2020 Strawberry Full Moon begins with a moonrise over the Atlantic Ocean on Florida's east coast around 8:25 p.m. Last night's eclipse is referred to as a "penumbral eclipse".
How are full moons named?
So it comes as no great joy to report that the lunar eclipse and "strawberry" moon phenomenon that's been popping up in news reports the past couple days isn't all it's cracked up to be. Space says it would have just "tinted" the lower edge of the moon.
It can be also called Strawberry Moon Eclipse as the moon appears a shade darker during the penumbral lunar eclipse phase.
The eclipse occurs on June 5 from 17:45 Universal Time (UT) to 21:04 UT, and is visible from Europe and Africa eastward to Asia and Australia. The Annular Solar Eclipse happens when the Moon is farthest from the Earth.
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. 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.
The world will witness the second penumbral lunar eclipse (Chandra Grahan) of 2020 on June 5. Though subtle, you can see the difference in the color of the Moon photographically before, during and after the eclipse. In India, the penumbral lunar eclipse will start at 11:15pm IST on June 5 and reach the maximum eclipse at 12:54am on June 6. The Lunar Eclipse 2020 is likely to last till the early hours of June 6.
