As you may already know, the United States will experience the Strawberry Moon on June 27 and 28 - but that's not the only reason to look up at the sky tonight. This celestial event will take place on 27 and 28 July and will also feature a visible "Blood Moon" -where the Moon appears red because of sunlight scattering through the planet's atmosphere.
The Strawberry Moon will reach peak fullness on Thursday at 12:53 a.m. ET, according to Time and Leisure. When this happens, the Moon will not completely disappear from view under the shadow, it does however, take on a deep red, nearly burnt orange colour.
The ringed planet will be in opposition (opposite the sun), rising high in the sky in the east shortly after sunset.
June's full moon is also sometimes called the Honey Moon or the Mead Moon.
The moon will officially rise at 8:48 p.m.in Western Washington, though you'll need to allow 5-10 minutes for the moon to be visible above the Cascades. But if you're not awake, don't worry: You can still check it out after the sun sets around 8:05 p.m. ET.
As the moon pokes above the horizon, it will be a delicate orange color. That means Saturn will be at its brightest and closest point to Earth this year. Some of the June full moon names are Cold Moon, Oak Moon, and Long Night's Moon, reminiscent of our names in January. So you should have a chance to see the Strawberry Moon peaking between the clouds that will be hanging around for the next few days.
Next month, there will be a total lunar eclipse which is going to be the longest one this century, say astronomers. Those on the night side of Earth in Europe, Asia, Africa and Australasia will all get a great view.
