The Moon is the full “Beaver” moon (Northeast Native American, Colonial American)
14d 18h old with 100% illumination.
Moonrise: 5:01 PM EST
Moonset: 6:27 AM EST
Other names for this month’s full moon include: “Hunter’s” (English), “Dark” (Celtic), “Snow” (Medieval Wiccan), and “Tree” (Neo Pagan Wiccan)
There’s been some discussion in the news about this being yet another “Super Moon”. There’s some truth to it this time, however, as the moon will be at perigee this evening making it appear some 14% larger than it would be at apogee. So, it’ll look pretty big popping up behind the hills!
