More than likely, the Full Moon on June 5, 2020, will appear the usual pearly-gray to most locations in North America.
The name for the penumbral lunar eclipse comes from the full moon's reddish color that is a result of the earth coming between the sun and the moon, casting a shadow on the latter.
