The longest partial lunar eclipse of this century and the full moon: How and when
You won’t have to be out the whole time for the experience, but you may have to choose between going to bed late and waking up early, depending on where you live.
We can expect clear skies across the Northeast, mid-Atlantic, and from Michigan and Ohio to Texas in the United States, said CNN meteorologist Chad Myers. Most of western Mexico and Southern Baja to Mazatlán will also have a clear view. Eclipses in other parts of North America – much of the Southeast, from the Highlands to the West Coast, and in most of New England and Canada – may be obscured by clouds. But don’t get completely discouraged.
“It’s a very long lunar eclipse so be patient and try to stay warm,” Myers said.
In a full fall, the moon will be reddish brown during the duration of the lunar eclipse. Earth’s atmosphere, which scatters sunlight, creates the effect of a sunset on the moon.
Beaver Moon Festival
The Cree and Assiniboines called this moon the frost moon when the cold weather settled, and the Tlingit called it the moon of digging for food, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac.
According to NASA. During the Loi Krathong festival in Thailand, people decorate and drop baskets into the river. This full moon also marks Cambodia’s Water Festival, which features dragon boat races.
Celestial events in December
If you still need to remove stargazing from your 2021 bucket list, there are a number of celestial events to catch up on before the year ends.
According to NASA, a total lunar eclipse, when the moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, will occur on December 4.
