Stawberry moon to rise Wednesday

Stawberry moon to rise Wednesday

The exact moment of the full moon occurs either side of midnight in North America, being fully illuminated on June 27 on the west coast and on June 28 on the east coast.

There will also be a full moon that night as well.

It was named a Strawberry Moon, because Native Americans saw it as a signal for the ideal time for fruit picking, according to the National Weather Service. "It's a cool moon because it traces a shallow path across the sky", Bob Bonadurer, director of the Milwaukee Public Museum's Daniel M. Soref Dome Theater & Planetarium said to Journal Sentinel.

On the rare occasion a second full moon takes place in one calendar month, it is known as a Blue Moon.

Sky watchers in the Puget Sound area could be in for a sweet treat this week when June's fat full moon makes a rosy appearance on Wednesday night. Specifically, the moon will be located to the right of Saturn and northeast of a pair of bright stars, Sigma Sagittarlii and Kaus Australis, on June 27, according to a separate report from Gloucestershire Live. However, that is not the best time to look at it.

Hamilton reclaims championship lead with French GP win
In my lifetime it's not been great for us, but we have a good team and England deserve at some time to win the World Cup. Hamilton shook his head as he watched a television replay in the green room before the podium celebrations.

Adding to the excitement will be a full moon in the early morning hours Thursday.

In order to get the best view of Saturn in opposition, the Express suggested focusing toward the southern skies, about 10 degrees over the horizon.

Cloud-free conditions will lead to uninterrupted views of Saturn for much of the western and central USA on Wednesday night.

The Strawberry Moon is also called Hot Moon because it's the beginning of summer and Rose Moon, Honey Moon and Hay Moon because it's the time of the first hay harvest.

Look for the Strawberry Moon at dusk, and keep looking for 15 minutes to give the Earth time to rotate a little to reveal the full moon.
