Lunar Eclipse On June 5: Everything You Need To Know About The Second Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Of 2020


The second penumbral lunar eclipse of 2020, known as the Strawberry Moon Eclipse, will take place between 5th and 6th June. A lunar eclipse is when the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon, thus casting a shadow over the Moon. There are three types of lunar eclipses: total lunar eclipse, partial lunar eclipse, and penumbral lunar eclipse. During a penumbral lunar eclipse, the Moon moves through the outer part of the Earth’s shadow, thus becoming very faint.

Here is all you need to know about the Strawberry Moon Eclipse:

Why is it called Strawberry Moon?

The name ‘Strawberry Moon’ is derived from the red colour of the ripe strawberry fruit. The Full Moon is meant to signify a short season for harvesting strawberries in the northeastern region of North America. The June’s full moon is also alternatively called the ‘Hot Moon or ‘Rose Moon’.

Which parts of the world will the eclipse be visible from?

This is composition pic of penumbral lunar eclipse, Jan 10th , 2020. A total penumbral lunar eclipse is a lunar eclipse that occurs when the Moon becomes completely immersed in the penumbral cone of the Earth without touching the umbra. The path for the Moon to pass within the penumbra and outside the umbra is very narrow. It can only happen on the Earth's northern or southern penumbral edges. In addition, the size of the penumbra is sometimes too small where the Moon enters it to contain the Moon. The width of the Earth's penumbra is determined by the Sun's triangular diameter at the time of the eclipse, and the Moon's angular diameter is larger than the Sun over part of its elliptical orbit, depending on whether the eclipse occurs at the nearest (perigee) or farthest point (apogee) in its orbit around the Earth. The majority of the time, the size of the Moon and the size of the Earth's penumbra where the Moon crosses it mean that most eclipses will not be total penumbral in nature. #picabuzz #moon #moonphotography #moonlight #lunareclipse #penumbrallunareclipse #moonphotography #astrophotography #astrophoto #universe #nature #naturephotography @spacephotos10 @dm_your_click @sirii_photography #sirii_photography @simple_kaptures #fotographicgirl @fotographic__ @photographermanofficial
