Partial Lunar Eclipse to be Visible in Pakistan Tonight

The Indian Express reports that the outer shadow of the Earth will fall on the moon and the planet's shadow will block some of the sunlight from reaching it resulting in a "penumbral lunar eclipse".

People watch the "Strawberry Moon" rise over the ocean on Narrawallee Beach on the South Coast of New South Wales on June 6, 2020.

In Europe, NASA said the full moon has been called the Mead Moon or the Honey Moon after the fermented drink.

Since it is a penumbral lunar eclipse, after some time, the Strawberry Moon is likely to be faint and make it hard for people to see.

June 2020 full moon is all set to grace the night skies over the next few days.

According to USA Today, this month's full moon derives its name - Strawberry Moon "from the Algonquin Native American tribes in eastern North America, who used its appearance as a signal to gather ripening wild strawberries, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac".

The Annular Solar Eclipse will be taking place on June 21, Sunday. In October, the Moon will appear in its fullest form twice, as per Space.com. Moon watchers in India will be able to watch the full moon with their naked eyes unless the sky is too cloudy.

Solar and lunar eclipses always come as twins or triplets, so, for this reason, the Strawberry Moon starts off what we refer to as the "eclipse season". The eclipse will be visible in Asia, Australia, Europe and Africa. "If the eclipses are going to take up in the beginning or end of the season, the chances that they are going to be total eclipses are very slim", he explains.

But don't expect a red-hued moon resembling a "blood moon", which occurs when there is a total lunar eclipse.
