An incredible timelapse video from Los Angeles captures the Beaver Moon during its dramatic partial eclipse Friday (Nov. 19).
The Beaver Moon lunar eclipse saw the moon 97% covered by Earth's shadow at its peak at 4:02 am EST (9:02 GMT), and was potentially visible to millions of stargazers across North America, Central and South America, as well as parts of Australia, Europe and Asia. .
Even though it wasn't a true "blood moon," or total eclipse, the moon was deep enough in the Earth's darker shadow (the umbra) and turned red due to the refraction of light in our planet's atmosphere.
