A Strawberry Moon rises along with a partial eclipse on Friday

Though North America will miss the eclipse, the Virtual Telescope Project will live stream the lunar event from above the Rome skyline on its website.

This phenomenon occurs when the moon passes through the earth's penumbra (during a total eclipse, it passes through the earth's shadow cone). The full moon or the Strawberry Moon will occur on June 5 at 3:12pm EDT (June 6 at 12:42am IST) and lunar enthusiasts in India will be able to watch it with their naked eyes.

The moon is doing something cool on Friday, and you could see it. Before going out and looking for a full moon in the skies today, it is important to first understand what a lunar eclipse is. "The name comes from the relatively short season for harvesting strawberries in the north-eastern United States".

The next full moon will appear in July 5 and it'll be called Buck Moon. That is because of the June marriage custom, or because the Honey Moon is considered the year's "sweetest" moon, NASA explained. Space says it would have just "tinted" the lower edge of the moon. It won't be visible in North America. A penumbral eclipse means that the sun, Earth, and moon are imperfectly aligned, and subsequently, the Earth stops some of the Sun's light from reaching the Moon, and the Moon is bathed in the Earth's shadow.


The eclipse will be visible from parts of Africa, including Central African Republic, Congo and Ethiopia. But this is a special event, which leads to three eclipses. Strawberry Moons can also appear brown-red in color during a total lunar eclipse.

Stargazers listen up: tonight marks the beginning of the eclipse season.

The "strawberry moon" got its name from the Algonquin tribes of Native Americans. It will encompass the months of November and December.
