Stargazers gather in cities across the United States, with the spectacular beaver moon-November full moon-which happens to be a penumbra lunar eclipse.
The lunar eclipse began at around 2.32 am Eastern Standard Time on Monday, when the moon entered the outer shadow of the earth, making its appearance darker than normal.
The full moon itself attracted many people, and many photographers took this opportunity to surprise.
According to Accuweather, the solar eclipse reaches its maximum illuminance around 4:30 am Eastern Time, and is called a penumbra lunar eclipse.
They are different from a total lunar eclipse because it occurs when the moon enters the outer shadow of the earth (called a penumbra).
This means that the moon is not glowing brightly as usual, making it appear darker than normal.
Conversely, during a total lunar eclipse, the change is more pronounced because the moon looks dark red.

The moon is sometimes referred to as the “frost moon”, “frozen moon” and “digging the moon or scratching the moon”, and is named after animals foraging for nuts in fallen leaves.
According to Accuweather, the last major astronomical event in November was the penumbra lunar eclipse on Monday morning, similar to the lunar eclipse that occurred in North America in early July.
Newather said: “During the penumbra lunar eclipse, the moon passes through the outer shadow of the earth called the penumbra and misses the darker inner shadow called the umbra.”
“This is different from the total lunar eclipse when the entire moon passes through the darker umbra.”

A half-moon eclipse is subtle and not as easy to detect as a more severe total lunar eclipse, because the moon will only become slightly darker.
It is expected that about 85% of the moon will darken the shadows at the peak or middle of the lunar eclipse.
According to NASA, although this type of lunar shadow effect is visible, the best chance is through a telescope.
Unlike a solar eclipse, no eye protection is required.
