Cubans fill social networks with the image of the first full moon of 2020

-

Last Friday, January 10, the first full moon of the year occurred, and its presence in the clear sky of Cuba motivated Internet users from all over the Island to capture and upload images of the celestial body in all its splendor to social networks.

The first full moon of the year is also known as “old moon” or “wolf moon”, a term that the natives of the United States began to use, who at that time of the year perceived an increase in the howls of hungry wolves in the surroundings of their villages.

The full moon or full moon is a lunar phase that occurs when the Earth is located exactly between the Sun and its satellite, which then reflects the light of the king star to Earth.

The visible hemisphere of the moon reaches its greatest illumination, it can be seen completely circular and with great luminosity throughout the night. This happens every 29 days, when the lunar cycle is completed.

In this phase, moon eclipses can occur. And precisely this Friday, the first penumbral lunar eclipse of 2020 also occurred, although the Cubans did not notice it, as it was visible in East Africa, Asia, Oceania and almost all of Europe.

A penumbral eclipse occurs when the Moon is completely submerged in the Earth’s penumbral cone without touching its umbra, the dark and innermost shadow of the planet.

During the rest of the year there will be three other eclipses of this type: June 5, July 4 and November 30.
