This week's night sky: Saturn shining with full moon

Full Moon

You'll need a telescope to see the planet's famous rings, however, but "if you have never spotted Saturn's rings, now is your chance", AccuWeather astronomy blogger Dave Samuhel said.

This is the closest to Earth that Saturn will be this year as Saturn's rotational axis will now pull the planet away.

The full Moon is always a handsome sight in the night sky, but this month it is particularly useful as well. Per Patch, it also goes by a variety of other names, including Rose Moon, Hot Moon, and Honey Moon. Specifically, the moon will be located to the right of Saturn and northeast of a pair of bright stars, Sigma Sagittarlii and Kaus Australis, on June 27, according to a separate report from Gloucestershire Live.

Budding astronomers will be able to see the moon at its highest at 9:53 p.m. PT the evening of June 27, 2018 on the West Coast and 12:53 a.m. ET in the early morning of June 28, 2018 on the East Coast. If you don't have a telescope, though, you can still spot Saturn in the sky.

According to the reports, the Strawberry Moon would be seen in its fullest size on Thursday 28 June.

Trump rails against Harley Davidson's decision to flee United States despite his backing
Rising trade tensions and retaliatory tariffs could pose serious risks for Harley-Davidson, rating agency Moody's said on Tuesday. Presumably the manufacture of the Harley-Davidson Street 500 and 750 in India plays a part in this decision.

But don't be fooled by the nickname, the full moon won't be sporting any extra color. The sight will be particularly sweet because of June's full moon, often referred to as the Strawberry Moon. When the moon is closer to the horizon, it looks larger-but that's just an illusion.

Full moons traditionally represented new beginnings and new change, with Native American women using the moon to cleanse their spiritual selves.

When is the Full Strawberry Moon?

This constellation is not the easiest to identify, because its stars are rather faint and it never rises high in the United Kingdom sky.

"Cloud-free conditions will lead to uninterrupted views of Saturn for much of the western and central United States on Wednesday night", the website reports.
