The Full Moon of this month has a few names; the Celtic ‘Moon of Horses’, the Medieval ‘Dyan Moon.  It also has the name of Strawberry moon.  This is a fitting name this month as it also happens to be a lunar eclipse.  On Wednesday night, if the sky is clear enough, you will see the moon with a blood red colour as it rises.

In Northern Ireland at 10:30 in the evening it can be seen as half red and then it will nearly be back to its usual colour before 11:00.  At 10:30 just look to the horizon in the south east; where the sun would usually rise.
