The full moon of June, which is the last full moon of spring or the first of summer, is traditionally called the Strawberry Moon. The full moon of 5th June 2020 brought with a penumbral eclipse, which occurs when the moon crosses through the faint outer edge of Earth’s shadow, called the penumbra, making part of the moon appear slightly darker than usual. Unlike a full lunar or solar eclipse, the visual effect of a penumbral eclipse is usually so minimal that it is hard to observe even with a telescope.
Get a tour of some fascinating photographs of this Strawberry moon captured around the globe.
In Pakistan, astronomers from various astronomers societies and local sky-gazers also captured this full moon accompanied by a penumbral lunar eclipse. Here are some photographs captured at Rawalpindi, Pakistan at 8:52 pm local time.
