This year’s Strawberry Full Moon of 2020 will be an exciting one, especially if you’re in Asia, Australia, Europe, or Africa, India and China. You may be able to see the penumbral lunar eclipse. It will be a subtle effect, but nonetheless, it’s still an amazing event. The eclipse begins at 17:45 UTC, peaks at 57% eclipsed at 19:24 UTC, and ends at 21:04 UTC.
If you’re interested in watching the lunar eclipse mark your calendar for noon at PT on Friday, June 5th at Virtual Telescope. Until then I’m going to share a few of the Strawberry Moon photos I’ve captured pre-full moon.
The above photos were taken just above the horizon on June 4th. The Moon was at 99.2% Waxing Gibbous. It was rising up through a layer of clouds. The color of the clouds and sky were beautiful.
I’m hoping for clear skies for everyone during the lunar eclipse and wishing you a happy mooning day!
