Strawberry Moon

“Strawberry Moon” (also called “Hot Moon”) – June’s full Moon, the latest-rising Full Moon this year. It appeared larger than other Full Moons. The name of the Strawberry Moon is connected to the harvest season of that berry in June.

“Strawberry Moon penumbral eclipse” was visible in Asia, Africa and Australia – the moon was less bright than usual. During a penumbral eclipse Moon passes into Earth’s outer shadow (penumbra). A total lunar eclipse occurs when Moon enters the shadow of the Earth (umbra).
