Enjoy November’s Full ‘Beaver Moon’ and Partial Lunar Eclipse

You should get up early this Friday and enjoy a partial lunar eclipse. This natural phenomenon will occur at about 2:59 AM CST. At the height of the eclipse, the shadow of the Earth will cover right at about 98% of the Moon. November’s Full Moon is a “Beaver Moon.” We have the full explanation to follow.

Why the “Beaver” Moon? This is the time of year when beavers begin to take shelter in their lodges, having laid up sufficient stores of food for the long winter ahead. During the time of the fur trade in North America, it was also the season to trap beavers for their thick, winter-ready pelts.
