NASA says ‘Strawberry Moon’ will appear in S’pore skies on Jun 6 from 3.12am

Standby your lenses

The Strawberry Moon we are expecting isn’t really strawberry coloured.

Get ready to view a different moon in the sky later this week on June 6 early morning in Singapore.

Strawberry Moon

According to NASA, a moon in a slightly different hue is set to appear in our skies soon. The phenomenon is due to the moon moving close enough to opposite the Sun and passing through part of the shadow of the Earth, resulting in an eclipse.

Don’t expect to see a pink or red colour moon though – the Strawberry Moon correlates to the relatively short season for harvesting strawberries in the USA.

We are more likely to catch the moon in orange or yellowish tinge, like the ones captured in these photos.

Plenty of time

NASA also says that the full moon will last for around 3 days, which gives us plenty of time to catch it in the evenings this weekend.

Expect to catch the first full Strawberry Moon on 6 June at 3.12am Singapore time.
