It's been almost 600 years since we have seen a partial lunar eclipse last this long and it may not happen again in our lifetime. 

November is the Beaver Moon so according to Space.com, this will be known as the Beaver Moon Partial Eclipse this Thursday night into Friday morning. This is the longest eclipse we've had in almost 600 years, the partial eclipse phase lasting 3 hours, 28 minutes, and 24 seconds.

The eclipse will actually start for us (penumbral phase) at 12:02 AM CT, however, without special equipment, you probably won't be able to see it with the naked eye until about an hour later starting at 1:18 AM.


That 97% eclipse peak they mention in the Tweet will take place at 3:03 AM Texarkana-Time.

Weather Forecast:

Thursday night into Friday morning in the wee hours looks good for partial eclipse-watching and photography. Clear skies with the overnight low 36 degrees.

Happy skywatching!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
