It’s the kind of asteroid that some scientists worry about, and it’s coming relatively close to Earth on Saturday. https://t.co/Bcof3KqnVR

There will be a full moon tonight.
Also known as the strawberry moon, will light up the night sky in most of the Western Hemisphere. The strawberry moon is named for the relatively short strawberry growing season in northeastern North America.
Tonight’s full Moon will follow a low, shallow path across the sky, meaning moonlight will travel through more of the Earth’s atmosphere and that should give it a colourful orange or yellow tint.
There’s a lunar eclipse too, but it won’t be visible here. You can watch it online though. The Virtual Telescope Project’s YouTube page will live stream the eclipse starting at noon today.
The next full Moon will be the Buck Moon on July 5th.
