Spectacular Strawberry Moon Eclipse: When and Where To See It In June

Strawberry Moon Eclipse

The entertainment industry is on pause. Broadways shows, concerts, festivals have been canceled and you grow tired of watching Netflix every day. Perhaps you can take advantage of this time to reconnect with nature and get creative about your entertainment in 2020.

Research reveals that being outdoors, and viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, stress and increases pleasant feelings. What you are seeing, hearing, experiencing is changing not only your mood, but also improving your immune system.

Luckily, the nature has scheduled a few shows for us to watch: an extra-special full moon and a lunar eclipse combined.

The second penumbral lunar eclipse of 2020 is expected to occur between June 5 and June 6. This lunar eclipse will be visible in most parts of Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, South/East South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, and Antarctica. This penumbral lunar eclipse is called ‘Strawberry Moon Eclipse’.

Despite not being able to see the eclipse in North America, you can still watch the spectacular Strawberry Moon at its very best on Friday, June 5, 2020.

June's full moon got its name as it's the month when wild strawberries begin to ripen. It marks the beginning of the summer months and is also known as the Hot Moon. These names come from traditional names given by Native Americans and early colonial settlers who used the full moons as a way of keeping track of the planting and harvesting seasons.

As summer season approaches, many countries are trying to figure out how to revive the travel industry. Greece has recently announced it expects to open its borders by July, Iceland said it will start welcoming tourists on June 15, Aruba expects to open by July.
