The skies have one last gift before the year ends—the Beaver Moon and a near-total lunar eclipse are set to occur on the same day

It is time to look up to the skies again.

One of the longest eclipses in history will happen on Friday, November 19, at 3:58am ET, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Called the Beaver moon, spiritual experts believe that this will put everyone's energies on "hyperdrive".

For starters, Beaver Moon is the name given to the full moon in November. According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, a book that contains lists of full moon names from Native American, Colonial American, and European folklore, the 'Beaver Moon' refers to the time of the year in which beavers hide in their lodges to prepare for winter.

The partial eclipse phase will last three hours, 28 minutes, and 24 seconds with the moon 97 per cent covered at its peak. The full eclipse, on the other hand, will last for six hours and one minute, making it the longest partial eclipse in 580 years according to the Holcomb Observatory in Indiana. The Beaver Moon is expected at 1:02am EST (0602 GMT).

People in North and South America, Australia, and parts of Europe and Asia will witness the much-anticipated sky event. Stargazers who do not live anywhere near these areas do not have to worry as a recorded timelapse video of the eclipse will be provided by The Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles on its official YouTube page.
