A Strawberry Moon rises along with a partial eclipse on Friday

Before going out and looking for a full moon in the skies today, it is important to first understand what a lunar eclipse is.

The name for the penumbral lunar eclipse comes from the full moon's reddish color that is a result of the earth coming between the sun and the moon, casting a shadow on the latter. Last night's eclipse is referred to as a "penumbral eclipse".

Unlike the dramatic reddening of the Moon seen during totality when the Moon slides through the inner dark umbra of the Earth's shadow, penumbral eclipses are subtle affairs.

Based on PAGASA's astronomical diary, the penumbral eclipse will be visible in the country and will begin when the Moon enters penumbra at 1:45 a.m. and ends at 5:04 a.m.

The next full moon will appear in July 5 and it'll be called Buck Moon.

When will June 2020 full moon occur?

Today is World Environment Day 2020 and coincidentally the universe is treating us with the attractive sight of a lunar eclipse. The eclipse is expected to peak at 12:54 am IST (June 6).

The eclipse will be visible from parts of Africa, including Central African Republic, Congo and Ethiopia. But this is a special event, which leads to three eclipses.

On 21 June there'll be an eclipse of the sun, the first solar eclipse this year. Moon watchers in India will be able to watch the full moon with their naked eyes unless the sky is too cloudy. The reason for this is that its central one - the June 20 annular eclipse - is very central, very close to the season's theoretical midst.
