Did you catch the Beaver Blood Moon lunar eclipse early this morning?
What was happening?
The last total lunar eclipse until 2025 will turn the moon blood-red on Tuesday, Nov. 8, but exactly when you should look up depends on where you are. The eclipse, dubbed the Beaver Blood Moon lunar eclipse since it occurs during November's Full Beaver Moon, will be visible across North America, the Pacific, Australia and Asia.During the eclipse, the full moon will pass through Earth's shadow as it moves behind our planet with respect to the sun, giving it a spectacular bloody color in the process.
Our friend Roger Clark at NY1 got a nice clip...

The longest partial moon eclipse in 580 years as seen from 2nd Avenue
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.And this was obviously a big event for Felton Davis of the Second Avenue Star Watchers.
He reports that the event here was almost rained out (ed note: stupid rain):
After a long, cold and drizzly night, the clouds over 2nd Avenue finally parted, revealing a slow eclipse of the Moon that was already in progress. Three or four times from 3:15 to 4:30 a.m., the Moon disappeared behind the clouds, and came back out, and each time I had to reset the (icy cold!) telescope ... and take a few photos.

Goggla shared this photo from Tompkins Square Park... as the moon rose tonight, heat waves from a chimney made it look like it was made of liquid.
There is video too...

The supermoon in the wild
People are talking about the moon ... and taking photos of it. Per NPR:
It's the nearest supermoon in almost 70 years — and we won't see another like it until 2034.
"When a full moon makes its closest pass to Earth in its orbit it appears up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter, making it a supermoon," NASA says.
In the U.S., we'll get three chances to see the moon at its brightest and biggest, from around sunset Sunday to Monday's predawn and sunset. On both days, the moon will rise around sunset.
EVG reader SylviaG shared these photos from today...
Keep an eye out for Felton Davis with his telescope on Third Street and Second Avenue outside the Bean.
