On Friday, June 5, in Ukraine it was possible to observe the so-called Strawberry moon. In the network appeared the photo of this phenomenon, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the Apostrophe.
Strawberry Moon got its name due to berries that ripen in this period.
Special it was because it coincided with polucheniem lunar Eclipse, which began at 21:45 local time and ended at 00:04.
Penumbral eclipses are quite difficult to see with the naked eye.
In the night from 5 to 6 June, during the maximum phase of the Eclipse 57% of the disk of the moon was in partial shadow of the Earth. Penumbral lunar Eclipse could be seen as a slight dimming of the moon.
Penumbral eclipses occur when the Moon enters the Earth’s shadow, that is when the Earth passes between the Moon and the Sun, blocking its light. This happens when the Sun, Earth and Moon line up in its movement. A lunar Eclipse can only occur during a full moon.
Also, the network appeared the photo of the Strawberry moon, done in the Crimea.
