LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – Just after sunset Monday, the Beaver Moon was very close to full. The peak illumination is at 6:02am.

This year the Beaver Moon is accompanied by a total lunar eclipse where the moon, sun and earth stand in line with the earth in the middle causing the earth’s shadow to be cast on the moon. The eclipse gives the moon a reddish coppery hue and also the nickname Blood Moon. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 11/08/2022-6AM)
