Full Beaver Moon, eclipsed



This was the ruddy, full Beaver Moon, 97% eclipsed, this morning at 4:11 am ET (9:11 UT). And, unlike the night sky of a non-eclipsed full moon, stars were readily visible surrounding the umbral-shadowed moon.



Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

19 November 2021.



▶ This was the maximum point (well, that actually had occurred 8 minutes earlier at 4:03 am) of a nearly 6-hour partial lunar eclipse, the longest such since 1440 and until the year 2669. If you were sleeping or you won't be able to wait for that next one, fret not! North America will be witness to, not one, but two TOTAL lunar eclipses next year, on 15 May and 7 November 2022. (Your geographical results may differ. Check your local listings.)
