The moon in June will make you Swoon

Moon-Gazing from Home

My daughter caught the above picture of the moon on Sunday.

So, I was curious and found out that this was due to the strawberry moon eclipse on June 5.

If you live in the northern hemisphere, June is all about the Moon.

For starters, the nights never get shorter. The “summer” solstice will occur on June 20, 2020 - this means that would be the longest day, and shortest night, of the year.

It takes the Moon 29.5 days to complete one orbit around the Earth. During that time it displays different phases as the Sun’s illumination of it changes from our point of view on Earth.

Moon-gazing opportunity this month:

  • Friday, June 5: Full Moon—the “Strawberry Moon Eclipse”
  • Saturday, June 13: Last Quarter Moon
  • Sunday, June 21: New Moon—also a “Ring of Fire Eclipse” in some parts of the world (it’s got nothing to do with the eclipse, but do look out for a delicate crescent Moon just after sunset from June 22—June 25)
  • Sunday, June 28: First Quarter Moon

Wherever you are, celebrate nature and enjoy the moon.

What can we learn from the moon at WA?

"Aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit a star."

– W. Clement Stone

Have a great week ahead and if you are out at night, take a gaze at the moon.

I love moon gazing. At night, under the stars, fire in the fire pit, Wifey by my side. Simple, quiet, peaceful. Take care my friend.


Sounds like a great evening... 👍🏼

I always think when looking at the moon of all the soldiers in all wars looking up at that very same orb in the evening when they were bivouacked!


Wow! what a picture! Amazing view you have!

Yes, it was.

Very Nice Stanley.


It's OK to stare at the moon as long as you don't start howling at it and growing hair all over your body.

Yes, if the metal plates come out of your hands, you are a super hero! 🐺

Very elegant post!

Thank you.
