A Strawberry Moon will sweeten up the night sky tonight

Astronomically, there isn't anything remarkable about tonight's full moon. Some of the June full moon names are Cold Moon, Oak Moon, and Long Night's Moon, reminiscent of our names in January.

The Strawberry Moon is also called Hot Moon because it's the beginning of summer and Rose Moon, Honey Moon and Hay Moon because it's the time of the first hay harvest.

The full moon will be at its peak at 12:53 p.m. EDT on the East Coast and at 9:53 p.m PDT on the West Coast.

Tonight, Inverse explained, "Earth's orbit will bring the planet in between Saturn and the sun, which will place Saturn opposite the sun in Earth's sky and create a rare opportunity to observe the ringed planet throughout the night". Think of it as a "full Saturn", in the same way the moon is full when the sun lights up the entire disc.

When is the Full Strawberry Moon?




Some of Saturn's moons might also be visible with a telescope, NASA said.

As you look at the pair, remember that Saturn is 35 times larger than the moon, but it's 3,400 times farther away, which is why it looks so small. It's a hypnotic sight indeed and the easiest time to look at it, but as it rises higher into the sky it will quickly change to yellow, and then to white as it becomes too bright to look at comfortably.

The Strawberry Moon will spectacularly light up the night skies of Thursday, June 28, when it reaches its full moon phase. The view on the Eastern Seaboard will be nearly entirely obscured by clouds, which are expected to be thick as far west as the Ohio River Valley. Areas in gray will have to deal with more clouds.

The forecast calls for partly to mostly clear conditions so viewing should be decent in Northwest Florida. McClure estimates that the total lunar eclipse will include partial eclipses that start at 6:24 UTC, or 2:24 p.m. EST, to 10:29 UTC, or 6:29 p.m. EST. In Los Angeles moonrise will occur at 7:51 p.m., and sunset at 8:08 p.m.

Chicago - 8:07 p.m.
