The Full Beaver Moon comes Saturday, brightening the sky and unfortunately making the Leonid meteor shower's peak and Comet ISON more difficult to see.
The moon will be full at 10:16 a.m. Sunday, which actually means Saturday night's moon will appear the closest to full.
The moon gets its name from the fact that November was the time of year fur trappers set their snares, before swamps froze, according to the Farmer's Almanac. November's full moon is also known as the Frosty Moon.
This month's full moon unfortunately coincides with a couple of other skywatching opportunities.
The Leonid meteor showers, which appear to emanate from the constellation Leo, peak Sunday. Debris from Comet Tempel-Tuttle's debris can produce up to 15 meteors per hour, best seen in the hours just before dawn, according to Astronomy magazine.
