Keep an eye on the sky because the November full moon will be happening over Canada at the same time as a lunar eclipse.

According to the Farmers' Almanac, the moon becomes full in the early morning hours on November 30 and at that time, Earth's natural satellite will be going through a penumbral lunar eclipse.

If you wake up early or stay up late, it will be visible for most of North America if the skies are clear.

the moon becomes full on November 30

A penumbral lunar eclipse happens when the moon passes through the outer part of Earth's shadow which is known as the penumbra.

Since there's not exact alignment you won't see that vibrant red colour and there will be a dark shadow instead.

Almost the entirety of Earth's natural satellite will be in the penumbra which means the upper part of it will be noticeably shaded when the eclipse reaches its midpoint.

The eclipse begins at 2:29 a.m. ET on November 30, the midpoint is at 4:42 a.m. ET and it ends at 6:55 a.m. ET.

The moon becomes full precisely at 5:30 a.m. ET which is just after the middle of the eclipse!
