Strawberry moon

The moon, she is full!   This month’s full moon is called the Strawberry Moon, and it occurred at about 5:40 AM this morning, as the moon was setting.   I was already up, so I walked outside to try to find a view not obstructed by trees (difficult to do in this neighborhood).    A partial lunar eclipse was happening at the same time.

This is a shot of the full moon as the shadow of the Earth clipped the top right portion while passing between it and the sun.

I guess it just looks like an ordinary waning or waxing moon, but it’s a bit more unique than that.   I’m glad I was up to see it.
