Strawberry moon set to dazzle stargazers in Scotland this week
he sixth moon of year is set to light up the night sky in Scotland this week in a spectacular lunar event.

Stargazers were treated to the SpaceX rocket launch carrying astronauts which whizzed over the country at the weekend in NASA's second attempt to make history.

Now you can grab your binoculars and cast your eyes to the skies again for a stunning full moon.

The next moon, otherwise known as the Strawberry Moon, will appear in Scotland on Friday, June 5 at 8.12pm.

It will appear red or pink and is one of 12 full moons to admire every years and was named by Native Americans to mark the start of the fruit picking season.

It's also known as the Rose Moon and Hot Moon, after the start of the summer's warm weather.

The Strawberry moon appears in June every year, the same month as the summer solstice which is the longest day of the year at almost 17 hours of daylight.

This year, the night of the Strawberry Moon will also see a penumbral lunar eclipse take place which will cause its surface to turn darker than usual.

Strawberry Moon - when is the June full moon 2020 and how it gets its name
Lockdown has made many of us more enthusiastic about stargazing and there's a Strawberry Moon coming - this is how to see it

We are taking a lot more notice of the night sky during lockdown.

In the evenings, many people are sitting out in their back gardens with a drink during the warm spell.

And those who aren't working have more time to devote to activities like stargazing that are normally pushed aside by the everyday bustle of commuting.

Let's face it, studying the constellations is one way of taking your mind off coronavirus concerns.

And events like the Starlink satellites and the SpaceX astronaut launch had us all rushing outside for a glimpse.

The good news is that there is a Strawberry Moon coming this month and it's something worth looking out for.

Full Strawberry Moon will appear tomorrow night - where and when to see it from the UK

f you’re a fan of stargazing, make sure you book tomorrow evening off in your diary.

A Full Strawberry Moon is set to appear on Friday night, and you don’t want to miss it!

A full moon occurs when the moon is located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun, meaning its face is fully illuminated.

While this full moon is often referred to as a Full Strawberry Moon, our lunar satellite won’t appear pink or red, as you might expect.

Instead, the name was chosen by early Native American tribes because it signalled the time of year to gather ripening fruit.

NASA explained: “The Maine Farmer's Almanac first published Indian names for the full Moons in the 1930's. According to this almanac, the full Moon in June or the last full Moon of Spring is known as the Strawberry Moon, a name universal to just about every Algonquin tribe.

Pretty in PINK! Strawberry moon beams over Britain in mesmerising photos from landmarks and beauty spots

As the day came to a close yesterday Britons were treated to the beautiful sight of a 'Full Strawberry Moon', which coincided with a subtle penumbral lunar eclipse.

There were fears that rain clouds would dampen the spectacle but across the country people were able to take incredible pictures of the moon which appeared in different colours when the clouds cleared.

While it is called a Strawberry Moon, that doesn't mean it appears red or pink - the name comes from the fact strawberries are ready to harvest this time of year.
