Strawberry Moon And Saturn To Dazzle Metro Vancouver Skies Tomorrow

Strawberry Moon And Saturn To Dazzle Metro Vancouver Skies Tomorrow

"If you have never spotted Saturn's rings, now is your chance", AccuWeather Astronomy Blogger Dave Samuhel said. NASA says the Strawberry Moon gets its name from the Algonquin tribe due to the "relatively short season for harvesting strawberries in northeastern North America".

The Strawberry Moon marks the sixth full moon of 2018, the previous ones occurred on January 1, Jan. 31, March 1, March 31, April 29 and May 29. It may even be possible to view some of Saturn's notable moons, like frozen (but perhaps not totally dead) Enceladus.

The moon won't necessarily look like a strawberry, but it can take on a reddish tint and appear unnaturally large.

The moon will be at its largest size at 9:53 p.m., he said.

This will make it easy for people of all ages to spot Saturn among a sea of countless stars in the night sky.

Full moons traditionally represented new beginnings and new change, with Native American women using the moon to cleanse their spiritual selves.

Granqvist added: "When we heard that this had occurred, the squad was annoyed". If so, I think we can very well get to the last 16 and why not go further".

The first full moon of summer, which is traditionally called a Strawberry Moon, will likely have a pink cast and appear unusually large, according to Washington State University astronomers.

Warm temperatures also mean that stargazers won't have to wrap up when wanting to see the full moon, with temperatures at around 16C during the moon's appearance.

Just prior to the time when the Strawberry Moon would achieve its peak, the sixth planet, Saturn would be just at the opposite of the Sun.

When is the Full Strawberry Moon?

People planning to look at Saturn through a telescope should wait until the middle of the night when the planet is high in the sky rather than near sunset or sunrise when Saturn is near the horizon.
