Full beaver moon to deliver partial lunar eclipse early Monday morning

Recommended Posts

Sky-gazers could be in for a treat Sunday night into early Monday morning as the celestial bodies align just right to create the full beaver moon along with an early morning lunar eclipse.

Hardcore star-gazers can set their alarms for 2:30 a.m. MT when the full moon, nicknamed the beaver moon, will pass through the partial shadow of the Earth for a penumbral lunar eclipse, according to NASA. The eclipse will create a slight dimming of the moon and may be difficult to notice without a telescope, NASA said.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the beaver moon earned its name from Native American tribes and European settlers who set beaver traps around this time of year to secure a warm supply of furs for the impending winter months.

Yes, proper homage was paid to the title wording.  It's a good thing this didn't occur on the last day of the work-week.

2 nights work by my local beaver. 12” diameter. Had to cut it down yesterday as it was poised to take out a power line.  He stared gnawing on the downed trunk last night. He has taken out and away 3 5-6” diameter trees in the last 4 days as well as multiple saplings. No stream to dam. Suspect he’s undermining the bank with a lodge.
