Full Moon Tonight
Look for it tonight - the November full moon, according to the Farmer's Almanac is the Full Beaver Moon. In years gone by, this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another reason for the moon's name is more practical; it suggests that this is the time beavers are actively preparing for winter. Anyway it will be a bright sight on this clear night with relatively dry air. And there's something else to see tonight - Jupiter: http://news.yahoo.com/jupiter-full-moon-dominate-wednesday-night-sky-062253938.html
