Earlier today, when I read this post by Scott Dance on the Maryland Weather blog in The Sun, I chuckled at the sexual connotation in the name of this evening’s full moon. I had heard of a blue moon and a harvest moon but until today I never knew there was such a thing as a “full beaver moon.”
All kidding aside, it’s more than just a full moon. If you looked closely you saw Jupiter in the background just above the moon.
I tried taking a picture but it was way beyond my little cameras comfort zone so I lifted this image from Astro Bob.
Special thanks and a big wag of the wordbones tail goes out to Theresa Stark Pines and her friend Carol Cisler Carter for bringing this my attention.
