The night sky will continue to be a show as we approach the end of 2020. Over Halloween stargazers were treated to a rare full moon that was also the smallest moon of the year. Earlier this month, the planets were arranged so that almost every planet in the solar system was on display. Near Christmas, the rare conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn will form a “double planet” in the sky and now today, November 29, the Frost Moon eclipse will delight those who watch the end.
According to Prevention (By Yahoo!) There is also an overnight full moon – The Frost Moon – between 29th November and 30th November – an eclipse that can be quite faint, according to Earthsyki, some people will be watching it directly and not realizing it is happening. .
The Frost Moon – also called the Oak Moon or Beaver Moon – is the full moon that occurs before the winter solstice. It also happens to be a lunar eclipse, but if you want to see it, you have to be too late depending on where you are. A lunar eclipse is when the moon moves into the Earth’s outer shadow or penumbra, making the moon appear darker than usual. The penumbral eclipse, which occurs from Sunday to Monday, is the last day of the year and appears in parts of North and South America, Australia, Australia, and Asia.
In the Eastern Time Zone, the eclipse will peak on November 30 at 4:43 p.m. In the Central Time Zone, it will be 3:43 p.m. In the Mountain Time Zone, that time is 2:43 a.m., in the Pacific it is 1:43 a.m., and in the Alaska Time Zone, for those living in the Hawaii Time Zone at 12:43 a.m., it is 11:43 p.m. On the afternoon of November 29th. At this point, about 83 percent of the Moon will be in a partial shadow of the Earth, although as noted earlier, there will be very little difference and it may be difficult to find it with the naked eye, although it should be somewhat visible through a telescope. It is also true that the moon will be in full position during the event, reaching the “full moon” position at 30:30 in the morning.
