A Full Beaver Moon Is Coming Thanksgiving Night So Don't Fall Asleep Right After Dinne
Travel and Liesure ^ | November 21, 2018 | Jamie Carter

The exact moment of full moon is 12:39 a.m. EST on Friday, Nov. 23 and 9:39 p.m. PST on Thursday, Nov. 22. At that moment, the moon will be 100% illuminated by the sun, something that isn't always visible from the U.S. However, looking at the Beaver Moon at the precise time is not always easy. If the night sky is clear, it will be just too bright to look at.

How to observe the Beaver Moon

At dusk on Nov. 22, position yourself somewhere with a good view of the eastern horizon and, if it's clear, you will see a pale orange moon appear. As it rises it will gradually increase in brightness and turn yellowish. As it's just rising, it can look huge, especially if you see it between two buildings. It's an illusion. The human brain usually sees the moon as larger when it's positioned lower down in the sky.

I guess Hunter’s Moon is too politically incorrect.

That’s a hairy beaver, but do you have a picture of a bald beaver?

That explanation is only for the West Coast people. If you are East Coast you just look up.
