Strawberry Moon Eclipse A Week Away
A strawberry moon may sound like a delicious dessert to some, but for astronomers it’s a dish that will fulfill their lunar eclipse appetite next Monday.
At 3:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time on June 4, the Moon will pass directly behind the Earth, producing the first lunar eclipse of 2012.
The eclipse will be visible in North and South America, Australia, eastern parts of Asia, and across the Pacific Ocean.
The Strawberry Moon is actually an event that takes place every year, and is the full moon that takes place in June.
