I feel like it's just been the past few years that we've discovered all these old names for the various full moons during the year, but apparently these names have been around for a long time. November is the month that beavers start to build dams and stash food for the winter, thus the November full moon is the "beaver moon".

The 'beaver moon' coincides with the Taurid Meteor Shower, but unfortunately due to the brightness of the full moon, visibility for the meteor shower won't be quite as good as it could be. The Taurids usually feature about 5-10 meteors per hour, moving slowly across the sky and producing huge fireballs.

Keep your eyes to the skies, and send us any pix or vids you take!
