14 November – Will the skies be clear to see the Beaver moon where you are? Check your local weather forecast.

What is a supermoon?

A supermoon occurs when a full moon coincides with the moon reaching perigee (the moon’s closest point of orbit to Earth). There are 3 supermoons in 2016 – in October, November and December. In October and December the moon will become full on the same day as perigee, however in November the moon will become full within hours of perigee – which makes it the biggest.

Why is it called a Beaver Moon?

In the Northern Hemisphere November’s full moon occurs at the time of year when hunters used to set traps before waters froze over, to ensure a supply of warm furs for winter – hence the name ‘Beaver Moon’.  This year, the Beaver Moon will also be a supermoon.
