June Full Moon: How to watch the Strawberry Full Moon eclipse this Friday

A STRAWBERRY Full Moon will rise this week - the last full moon of spring.

Here is the lowdown on the June full moon.

When is the June full moon?

The Strawberry Full Moon will reach "peak illumination," according to The Old Farmer's Almanac

What is a Strawberry Full Moon eclipse?

The Moon will pass through part of the shadow of Earth, according to NASA, causing what is called a penumbral eclipse.

The eclipse will not be seen at all in North America, but the visual effect is usually minimal.

The name of the full moon "originated with Algonquin tribes in eastern North America who knew it as a signal to gather the ripening fruit of wild strawberries,” according to The Old Farmer's Almanac.

How can I watch it?

The best time to see the Strawberry Full Moon likely will be Friday night - just after sunset.

"Look towards the southeast to watch the full Moon rise gently above the horizon," The Old Farmer's Almanac instructs.

"There, it will appear large and golden hued."

Early Friday morning is also a good time to spot the moon.

If you are in New York City, 5:18 am and 8:30 pm will be the best times to spot the Full Moon on Friday.

The Almanac's Moonrise and Moonset Calculator can recommend a good time for you.

Is a strawberry moon the same as a blood moon?

A blood moon happens when the Moon is in a total lunar eclipse, according to Space.com.

"While it has no special astronomical significance, the view in the sky is striking as the usually whiteish moon becomes red or ruddy-brown," Space.com notes.

The next blood moon will take place on May 26, 2021, and will be visible from parts of North America.

What are Strawberry Moon rituals?

A full moon is "the perfect time to cleanse the air, set intentions and love the skin you’re in," according to Spafinder.

Removing toxic relationships or energies from your life and eating better is suggested.

"On the date of the full moon, simply grab your sage, light it up and walk around your room or home, focused on your intention," suggests Spafinder.

"Speak it aloud if you like to share with others or simply focus your mind on it."

When is the next full moon?

The Thunder Moon will strike in July.

It is named after the thunderstorms which typically fall during this summer month.

It will be on July 5 at 12.44 am, and will see another penumbral lunar eclipse.
