Those in the Southern Hemisphere, including Africa, Australia and Central and Southern Asia, will see the penumbral lunar eclipse in its entirety, while the eastern coast of South America will see the end of the penumbral eclipse at moonrise, according to Space.com.
(Gray News) - June's full moon is coming this week.
People in Asia, Europe, Australia, and Africa may be able to see the Strawberry Moon turn a shade darker during the maximum phase of this penumbral lunar eclipse. For the unversed, this is the second penumbral lunar eclipse and the first one happened on January 10. Given the very late (or very early?) hours the eclipse is set to appear in Australian skies, it's probably not worth adding to your June long weekend to-do list, according to astronomer Professor Fred Watson, who says you would need to be an expert skywatcher to see any change at all in the Moon's appearance. The effect is so subtle that it is almost imperceptible.
During a penumbral lunar eclipse, the Moon notches the outer shadow of our planet. Though subtle, you can see the difference in the color of the Moon photographically before, during and after the eclipse.
The Strawberry Moon is expected to reach its peak illumination at 7:12 p.m. UTC, shortly before the peak of the penumbral eclipse.
Add basil (Tulsi) leaves into the water vessel or stored food items in your refrigerator to protect them from the harmful rays emanating out of Chandra Grahan or Lunar Eclipse. The terms are derived from traditional names given by Native Americans and early colonial settlers in the U.S. who used the full moons as a way of following the planting and harvesting seasons. So, when the full moon rises in June, many saw it as a sign their gardens were reaching their peak. At most, expect to see a slight shading on the southern limb of the Moon at maximum eclipse. The June 5th will be the second and two more will occur in July and November, respectively. Meanwhile, looking at a lunar eclipse directly does not cause any damage to the eyes.
Additionally, the month of June will feature the planet Mercury, an ordinarily hard-to-spot planet, becoming visible to stargazers with the aid of binoculars.
