Here’s another update from SMBAS Blog on that large, disc-like, shining object which has frequently and mysteriously appeared in our nighttime sky this year (some, in hushed whispers, call it the moon).

Nov. 6, 2:23 p.m. PST — Full Beaver Moon.   Now it is 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 comes from the fact that the beavers are now active in their preparation for winter.   This full moon is also called the Frosty Moon.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac has a page for each full moon, which has tips on times to harvest, fish and set eggs, things which every Los Angeles Westsider worth their salt should know.

Note: Pacific Daylight Time started March 9, 2014 at 2 AM (becoming 3 AM) and ended November 2, 2014 at 2 AM (becoming 1 AM).

The next significant full moon will occur on December 6, 4:27 a.m. PST.   Keep an eye on this spot for additional late-breaking news on this unprecedented event.

But that’s waaay too long to type in, and besides, you don’t need to go there because SMBAS has done the work for you!
