The full Beaver Moon of November 2021 passed through Earth’s shadow in a partial lunar eclipse overnight on Nov. 18-19 in what was the longest eclipse of its kind in 580 years. 

Skywatchers with clear skies across the United States and Canada, as well as Central and South America and parts of Australia, Europe and Asia were able to view the historic Beaver Moon eclipse, in which the moon was 97% covered by the Earth’s shadow, taking on a red hue even if the moon phase wasn’t a true blood moon
