The Frost Full Moon is one name given to the full moon that occurs in November, but it also's referred to as the Beaver Moon, a nickname inspired by nature. Native Americans, looking to keep track of time, named the full moons every month based on what was happening in nature. In November, the full moon has two commonly adopted names, the Frost Moon and the Beaver Moon. The Frost Moon is named for the timing of the first hard frost and the Beaver Moon is due to beavers building their winter dams by the light of the moon, and hunters setting traps to capture the heavy pelts to stay warm during the winter.
And this isn't just any old beaver moon, this year's Full Beaver Moon will be an extra special lunar event, a total lunar eclipse, as the earth moves between the sun and moon, which happens every six months.
