Sydney Will Be Treated To A ‘Strawberry Moon’ Eclipse On Saturday Morning

In fact, if you live in North America, the eclipse won't even be visible. This is the second Lunar Eclipse of the year 2020. Therefore, kindly note that there is no need to perform prayer for this penumbral lunar eclipse. The next two lunar eclipses can be seen on July 4 and November 29.

A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, earth and moon align in an nearly straight line.

The name 'Strawberry' originates from North America, where native people associated the rising of the Full Moon in June with the blossoming of berries.

A penumbral eclipse happens when the outer part of earth's shadow, called the penumbra, falls on the moon. As the Moon passes through the shadow, there is a slight dimming of the lunar surface, which allows us to witness a penumbral lunar eclipse.

So set your reminder and make sure you don't miss it!

Unfortunately, the name doesn't apply to the moon's appearance, but rather to the time of year when it shows up. The Blood moon, the Supermoon and the Blue moon and then there are the combinations such as "Super Blue Blood Moon", which by the totally happened in 2018. "When the moon is low on the horizon, it allows you to capture the view with objects in the foreground, making the moon appear bigger", Jones said.

When can I see the Strawberry Moon Eclipse in Australia?

And if you're thinking the name Strawberry Moon is derived from its shady red colour, you're wrong. It's the brightest star in the Scorpio constellation, and responsible for turning our moon a blushing pink hue to kick off the long weekend.

For the uninitiated, there are three types of Lunar eclipse: Total lunar eclipse, partial lunar eclipse, and penumbral lunar eclipse.

"Full moons are always visible everywhere in New Zealand but visibility is weather dependent as if it is cloudy then it won't be possible to see the moon", she said.

People should avoid consuming food or drinks during the Grahan period. This incident, which NASA marks to be appearing on June 5, 3.12 PM EDT, is of Moon appearing opposite of the sun. "The rest of India will see a partial eclipse". Following Friday's penumbral lunar eclipse, there will be a solar eclipse on June 21, and another penumbral lunar eclipse on July 5, which will only be visible to some parts of the world.
