Other names for the full moon of November are Mourning Moon and Beaver Moon. These names were used by Native American Tribes who tracked the seasons using the location of the moon. The Old Farmer’s Almanac talks about this.
This faint eclipse will be partially visible for probably one hour. The appearance of this eclipse would be very faint. So much in fact that many people will claim to have seen nothing in the sky. This information was received from the reports of EarthSky. The eclipse will look like a very subtle shading on the surface of the moon.
