Partial Lunar Eclipse to be Visible in Pakistan Tonight

According to Time and Date the eclipse will start at 9:15 am on June 21 and will complete the entire process in about 6 hours and will end at 3:04 pm on June 21.

"During this Full Moon, it's critical that you let go of the workload mentality and make way for some fun and relaxation". When this happens, the Earth blocks part of the Sun's light from reaching the Moon and covers all or part of the Moon with its outer shadow. However, our calendar is not perfectly synchronised with astronomical events, therefore, every now and then, a year has 13 full moons.

What are the full Moons of 2020? In October, the Moon will appear in its fullest form twice, as per Space.com. You'll also hear it referred to as the Mead Moon, Honey Moon, Rose Moon and Hot Moon.

In Florida, the 2020 Strawberry Full Moon begins with a moonrise over the Atlantic Ocean on Florida's east coast around 8:25 p.m.

The name Strawberry Moon originates from North America, where native tribes associated the rising of the June Moon with the blossoming of berries. The celebration is based on the legend of Savitri and Satyavan.

As NASA wrote on Monday, the moon will be at its fullest around noon PT. So it comes as no great joy to report that the lunar eclipse and "strawberry" moon phenomenon that's been popping up in news reports the past couple days isn't all it's cracked up to be.

The Partial Solar Eclipse, occurs when the Moon, Sun, and the Earth are not in straight line but the Moon came in between the Sun and the Earth partially.

The eclipse will be visible from parts of Africa, including Central African Republic, Congo and Ethiopia. There will be four such eclipses this year (the first was in January) - the last will be on 30 November. The size of the moon will not reduce but it will get darker.

Eclipse season resumes on June 5th, with a fine penumbral lunar eclipse.

"During this eclipse the Moon will not be in the sky for most of the Americas".

According to NASA, the next full Moon will appear on June 5 at 3:12pm EDT (June 6 at 12:42am IST). At most, expect to see a slight shading on the southern limb of the Moon at maximum eclipse. A live link will likely be up on their YouTube channel by tomorrow. The first full moon of the summer was a sign for them to begin harvesting wild strawberries.
