November’s full moon is the Beaver.
All are busy, in a fever.
For the winter, must get ready,
Keep on working, very steady.
It’s time for another full moon! This one’s called the Beaver Moon, and by some the Frost Moon. As if that isn’t good enough NASA tells us that the longest partial eclipse of the century will take place on November 18 and 19. An eclipse happens when the moon “hides” away from the sun under Earth’s shadow. It will be there for 3 hours, 28 minutes, and 23 seconds. Pretty precise, huh?
NASA also tells us that if the sky is clear where you live, you will probably be able to see the eclipse. Check your local news for the best times to see it. I’m on the East Coast, which means between 2 and 4 a.m. But West Coast observers can start at a much more reasonable 11 p.m.
