Dreamers around the world treated to a full moon of strawberries

Astronomers and amateur stargazers around the world were treated to a so-called & # 39; Strawberry Moon & # 39; that took off in the air prior to the summer solstice.

The moon phenomenon – which reappears tonight when the sky is clear – will see the moon turn pink.

The June full moon owes its name to the early Indian tribes because it coincides with the time of year for the collection of ripe fruit.

The Strawberry Moon is the sixth of the twelve full moon phases of this year.

NASA, the space agency, said the moon will position itself opposite the moon and fully illuminate the Earth's side.

On the weekend, NASA said: & # 39; The next Full Moon will be on Monday morning, June 17, 2019, and & # 39; will appear versus & # 39; the Sun – earth-based longitude – at 4.31 a.m. EDT.

& # 39; The moon will appear to be full for about three days around this time, from Saturday evening to Tuesday morning. & # 39;

Here in the UK the morning peak of the Full Moon is not visible.

Instead, hopeful astronomers will have to wait until later when the moon slowly crawls over the horizon at 9:30 AM BST from London.

The traditional native American name for the full moon in June suggests that it can become a red shade.

But while the moon will not be the color of a ripe strawberry, it will change color and appear brighter as you live further north.

WHAT IS THE STRAWBERRY PINK MOON?

Despite its name, the moon is unlikely to become a hue of strawberry red.

In recent years, the traditional Native American names have become more commonplace in modern speech for the full moons.

According to the Maine Farmer & # 39; s Almanac – who first published the Indian names for the full moons in the 1930s – the name of the relatively short season for strawberry harvesting comes in Northeast America.

The name is applied to the full moon in June or the last full moon of spring, but the same full moon went under many other traditional names in other parts of the world.

The Strawberry Moon happens when the moon revolves around the earth on almost exactly the same plane as the earth revolves around the sun.

That means that when the sun is highest in the sky near the summer solstice in June, the full moon in front of our closest star is generally the lowest in the sky.

The moon was at its maximum brightness yesterday in the UK at around 9.30 a.m. in the UK when it was below the horizon, with skywatchers enjoying the best when he rose above the horizon 12 hours later.

In Australia, the full moon illuminated the sky throughout the country at sunset, with most cities going through the event between 6 and 6.30 p.m. (GMT +10).

About once every twenty years, the Strawberry Moon falls at the same time as the summer solstice – on June 20, 21, or 22.

The moon is also called Honey Moon, Mead Moon or Full Rose Moon in Europe.

While countries in the southern hemisphere may know it as an oak moon, cold moon or long night moon.

In April, Good Friday organized the entire Pink Moon.

Despite its name, there is no real color change in the appearance of the moon's surface, but gets its name because it coincides with the flowering of a pink wild flower.

The name comes from the Phlox of the moss-rose, or & # 39; wild soil & # 39 ;, which blooms in early spring in the US and Canada.

It occurs when the moon is on the other side of the earth as the sun, which means that the face is fully illuminated.

According to an old woman's story, many believe that work can be caused by the lunar cycle and the start of a full moon.

WHAT IS A FULL PINK MOON AND WHERE IS ITS NAME?

The phenomenon, known as the & # 39; Pink Moon & # 39 ;, owes its name to the flowering of the brightly colored herb & # 39; moss pink & # 39 ;, which usually coincides with its arrival.

It is also known as the egg moon, the germinating grass moon, the growing moon or the full fish moon.

The name comes from the Phlox of the moss-rose, or & # 39; wild soil & # 39 ;, which blooms in early spring in the US and Canada.

In the northern hemisphere, the full moon in April corresponds to the flowering of one of the earliest flowering plants from spring – wild ground phlox or & # 39;

The pink moon, also known as the grass moon and the eijaar, was nicknamed by Indians, who gave each full moon a name to keep track of time.

Indians have a full moon name for each month in the calendar, including Wolf Moon for January, Snow Moon for February and Worm Moon for March – then Flower Moon in May. Strawberry Moon is for June, Buck Moon is for July and Sturgeon Moon is for August.

In September there is a Harvest Moon, Hunter & # 39; s Moon is in October, Beaver Moon is in November and Cold Moon is in December.
