The ringed planet will look like a bright star next to the moon, which is full at 10:53 p.m.in Denver. This hue is typical of June full moons because they rise so low in the sky, which allows the light to be filtered by the atmosphere such that the orange and red become more visible. It's called the Buck Moon, Thunder Moon or Hay Moon, though in 2018 it will also be a Blood Moon or total lunar eclipse much like the Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse seen in the U.S.in January. Unlike last month, when the full Flower Moon occurred during daylight hours for observers in North America, the full Strawberry Moon can easily be viewed at the exact moment is becomes 100% illuminated.

Skywatchers will enjoy a double treat Wednesday night and early Thursday morning, thanks to the full "Strawberry" Moon and our closest view of Saturn this year. At that time, anyone with even a small telescope will be able to check out some of the planet's unique features. That means Saturn will be at its brightest and closest point to Earth this year. The view on the Eastern Seaboard will be nearly entirely obscured by clouds, which are expected to be thick as far west as the Ohio River Valley. Cloud cover will obscure the sky for many in the Northeast and along parts of the mid-Atlantic coast, said weather.com meteorologist Chris Dolce.

The forecast calls for partly to mostly clear conditions so viewing should be decent in Northwest Florida.
