There’s something special, magical, about sky-watching events. For just a second, something way up in the sky, outside of our daily lives, can pull us out of ourselves and into a communal experience that we share with people all over the world. We felt that with meteor showers and the solar eclipse earlier this year. Even with chaos going on in the world around us, it’s grounding. Lucky for us, The Beaver Full Moon will be the largest full moon we’ve had yet in 2017 and it’s happening to grace our sky this full moon weekend!
The Beaver Moon’s path isn’t passing through any of the 12 constellations of the traditional zodiac, but will pass into Cetus and in front of Aldebaran. The Aldebaran is the brightest star in Taurus, so on Nov. 5 you might just be able to see occultation which is when one celestial body blocks another.
Get your moon loving friends out for a special viewing. Bring the themed snacks like moon pies and enjoy the Beaver Moon.
