This Full Moon carries special events and will be very light and large because the satellite will be at his perigee (very close to the Earth).
There will be also a partial lunar eclipse in the next hours, visible in Australia and in East Asia.
Native Americans named the June full Moon “Strawberry Moon” because the relatively short season for harvesting strawberries comes each year during this month and now this is the most popular name of June full Moon in North America.
But there also other names for this full Moon, from people around the word.
This article, published at “Koh Samui, Koh Phangan & Full Moon Party” lists the most popular as the “Vesak Moon” which is also the Buddhist celebration of the Buddha Day.
Here is a table time for the event:
Penumbral eclipse starts – 08:48:09 UT
Partial eclipse starts – 09:59:53 UT
Greatest eclipse – 11:03:13 UT
Partial eclipse ends – 12:06:30 UT
Penumbral eclipse ends – 13:18:17 UT
When the greatest eclipse occurs, the moon will be at its highest point above the Earth in the sky for observers in the South Pacific, and the maximum umbral magnitude will be 0.38.
