Why is the November 2016 Moon the most interesting of the year?

First, it’s a “Perigee” Moon—when the Moon reaches the point in its orbit that is nearest to Earth.

Even better, this Moon will be nearer to Earth than it’s been in 70 years. While the Moon won’t technically be getting any bigger, it will appear up to 14% larger than when it is at its furthest point.

Further, the full Moon of November 14 is not only the closest full Moon of 2016 but also the closest full Moon in the 21st century and it won’t come this close to Earth again until November 25, 2034. Besides appearing large and bright in the sky, this extra-close Perigee Moon (or, Supermoon) will also have a more dramatic effect on the tides.

“November’s full Moon was called the Beaver Moon because it was the time to set traps, before the waters froze over. This Moon was also called the Full Frost Moon.”

“American Indians gave names to each of the full moons to keep track of the passing year. The names are associated with the entire month until the next full moon occurs. Since a lunar month averages 29 days, the dates of the moons change from year to year.”

In the Comanche (Southern Plains) language, the November Full Moon is “yubaubi mua” – “Heading to Winter Moon.”

Here is Western Washington University’s list of Native American Full Moon names.

Full Moon names date back to Native Americans, of what is now the northern and eastern United States. The tribes kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to each recurring full Moon. Their names were applied to the entire month in which each occurred. There was some variation in the Moon names, but in general, the same ones were current throughout the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior. European settlers followed that custom and created some of their own names. Since the lunar month is only 29 days long on the average, the full Moon dates shift from year to year. Here is the Farmers Almanac’s list of the full Moon names.

Full Beaver Moon – November This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to as the Frosty Moon.
