With a clear sky Saturday night and Sunday morning, you may have noticed a full moon in the sky. The full moon is actually Sunday at 12:27 p.m. EST. Clouds in the sky this evening will likely obscure the viewing of the moon.
Every full moon is given a name. This one is the Full Beaver Moon.
According to space.com: “At this point of the year, it’s time to set beaver traps before the swamps freeze to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Beaver Full Moon come from the fact that the beavers are now active in their preparation for winter. It’s also called the Frosty Moon.”
