November’s full moon, also known as the beaver moon, appeared in the night sky early Monday. According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the display marks “the time of year when beavers begin to take shelter in their lodges,” hence the unusual nickname.
This year’s beaver moon also coincided with a penumbral lunar eclipse, Space.com reported.
