MANILA - The onset of a penumbral lunar eclipse was seen from Morong, Rizal on Friday night.

The celestial event is also called “strawberry moon” because of the fruit’s harvest season in North America.

Jovelyn Mateo sent to ABS-CBN News photos she took of the "strawberry moon" Friday night.

PAGASA said the eclipse would begin when the moon enters penumbra at 1:45 a.m. and ends at 5:04 a.m.

"A penumbra refers to a partially shaded outer region of a shadow that an object casts. A penumbral eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the faint penumbral portion of the earth’s shadow," it said.

The astronomical event will also be observed in much of Europe and Asia, Australia, Africa, and other parts of the world.
