Beaver Moon

Moon rising over the trees beyond the garden shed

The November full moon is often referred to as the Beaver moon as it was observed that beavers were most active during this time of the year preparing their lodges for the long winter ahead. The moon has appeared full for several nights now. We took a walk up the road last evening as the moon was rising and it was magical the way it was shining through the forest – casting long tree trunk shadows across the landscape.

I caught the full moon coming up tonight framed by our garden shed and the oak tree in the front yard. If you have the energy to get up early, there will be a lunar eclipse happening at around 4:30 am Monday morning! The eclipse will begin around 2:30 and end around 6:30 – from what I’ve read.
