The next full moon in 2014 is slated to take place on Thursday, November 6.
The Full Beaver Moon is slated to peak at 5:23 p.m. EST.
The name stems from the Native Americans, who named each full moon.
“For both the colonists and the Algonquin tribes, this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. This full Moon was also called the Frost Moon,” according to the Farmer’s Almanac.
The new moon this month will rise on November 22.
The last full moon of the year is slated for December 6. It’s called the Full Cold Moon.
“This is the month when the winter cold fastens its grip and the nights become long and dark. This full Moon is also called the Long Nights Moon by some Native American tribes,” the Almanac explains.
The last new moon is set for December 22.
The dates for next year are already in as well.
2015’s first full moon will happen late on January 4.
