Time To Watch The June 2020 Strawberry Full Moon In Florida

The first weekend of June is kicking off with the full Strawberry Moon on Friday.

"To the Algonquin tribes who once roamed much of North America, June was synonymous with strawberries".

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. Other sources quote Mead Moon as the Anglo-Saxon name because this was the time for mowing the meads, or meadows.

What's the best time to see it?

Why is this Full Moon called a Strawberry Moon?

A penumbra, the bureau said, refers to a partially shaded outer region of a shadow that an object casts.

It begins on Saturday, June 6, at 3.45am (AEST) in Sydney and will be at its maximum at 5.24am (AEST).

Its name comes from the ripening of the juicy fruit during the northern summer, but June's full moon is also called the "Hot Moon" and the "Rose Moon".

Black Panther 2 Will Begin Filming This Summer
Rumors do offer that Black Panther 2 will involve Namor and the Atlanteans, but that is all speculation as of now. Black Panther 2 is said to be moving forward at Marvel Studios with Tenoch Huerta said to be playing a villain.

"During this eclipse the Moon will not be in the sky for most of the Americas".

If you're wondering when the best time is to see the Strawberry Moon in your town, you can use this tool from the Farmer's Almanac. In October, the Moon will appear in its fullest form twice, as per Space.com.

The Partial Solar Eclipse, occurs when the Moon, Sun, and the Earth are not in straight line but the Moon came in between the Sun and the Earth partially. It won't be visible in North America.

The CosmoSapiens YouTube channel will also be showing a live stream - which you can view below - of the "strawberry moon" and partial penumbral eclipse "for stargazers experiencing bad weather or light-polluted night skies". But this is a special event, which leads to three eclipses.

"An annular eclipse happens when the moon is farthest from Earth".

The next full moon following the strawberry is the Sunday, July 7, Full Buck Moon.

Penumbral lunar eclipses are often hard to see by the naked eye, as only a portion of the sun's light is blocked from reaching the moon.
