The night of the 2nd and 3rd of June 2015 got the world talking as it was a full moon and the orange moon appeared.

An orange moon got social media talking. The reason for the orange moon was that the planet Saturn and star Antares was in the eastern sky at dusk and nightfall on June 2. As Earth turns underneath the heavens, it look for the full moon. Saturn and Antares move westward across the nighttime sky. The celestial threesome climb highest up tonight around midnight, and will sit low in the west at dawn June 3.

 

Did you experience the orange moon in all it’s fascination? Tell us what you saw.
