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

Tonight’s Strawberry Moonrise over a neighbors porch. My first handheld shot with my new Canon M50 Mirrorless camera with adaptor and 50-250 STM Lens. Just got a bunch of snaps before the moon quickly disappeared into the clouds. #canonusa #canonwhatelse #learnwithcanon #canonm50 #canonm50mirrorless #islandprimeshot #moonlight #moonrise #supermoon2020 #nightphotography #twighlight #longislandny #oceansideny #longislandlife #fullmoon #strawberrymoon #fox5ny #newsday #ny1#news12li #strawberrymoon2020 #nycprimeshot #infinity_newyork #smilbergphotoz
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.
