Nearly total Beaver Moon lunar eclipse, longest of its kind in 580 years, wows stargazers


Skywatchers across North America got a first class view of the longest partial lunar eclipse in nearly 600 years, though for some, frigid weather threatened to ruin the experience. 

The Beaver Moon lunar eclipse of 2021, which saw the moon 97% covered by Earth’s shadow at its peak at 4:02 am EST (9:02 GMT), was potentially visible to millions of stargazers across North America, Central and South America, as well as parts of Australia, Europe and Asia.
