This November’s full moon, called the Beaver Moon is very unique. As a matter of fact, it’s something you may only experience once in a lifetime. Read on to discover why!

The Beaver Moon is also referred to as the Snow Moon, the Fog Moon and the Mourning Moon. November’s full Moon was called the Beaver Moon because in days of old, this was the time of year to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm furs for the winter. This year the Beaver Moon officially falls on Monday, November 14th at 8:53AM (Eastern Time) but, weather permitting, will be fully visible all night long after dark beginning Sunday, November 13th. To discover the actual peak time the moon will be visible where you live according to the Old Farmer's Almanac, provide your location here.

The Beaver Moon alerts us that this is the time of the year to finish projects, tie up loose ends, relax and regroup. This is also the time to contemplate the Blessings that we have received in the past year.

A Super, Supermoon!
November's Beaver Moon will be quite special this year. The Full Moon will be the closest to Earth than it’s been since January 1948 (that’s almost 70 years!) The Moon will appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than an average full moon. This is the closest the Moon will get to Earth until November 25th, 2034. A moon of this statue is called a Supermoon and this one will be as Super as they come! Supermoons are not uncommon, we just had one last month on October 16th, and after the November 14th Super, Supermoon, we will have another one on December 14th this year.

What Makes a Full Moon so Super?
When the Sun, the Moon, and Earth line up as the Moon orbits Earth, that’s known as syzygy. When the Earth-Moon-Sun line up this way, with the Moon facing us and the Moon is on the opposite side of Earth from the Sun, we get what’s called a perigee-syzygy. That causes the Moon to appear much bigger and brighter in our sky than usual, and it’s referred to as a Supermoon - or more technically speaking, a perigee moon. 

The November 2016 Beaver Moon will be the Supermoon of supermoons. If you have the opportunity on November 13-14th to to witness this astronomical event, you will be glad that you did as there will not be one like it for another 18 years.

Memories of Autumn
The end of the harvest has just passed and we get ready for the colder and darker months to come. Even though the Harvest Season is over, we can still find some crisp, sweet apples. One of my fondest memories of Autumn was coming home from school, walking in the door and smelling apples baking. I knew that we would soon be eating Grandmother's Autumn Apple Crisp. I am including the recipe for you.  Maybe you can bake up a warm batch of this tasty treat and enjoy it while basking in the glow of the Beaver Supermoon this November! 

Grandmother’s Autumn Apple Crisp


7 tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced
4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup butter, room temperature 

Preheat oven to 375°F. In a mixing bowl, combine apples, lemon juice, and vanilla. Toss to combine.

Layer sliced apples in a 9 x 12-inch baking pan.

Combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and oatmeal in a bowl. Cut in the butter. Sprinkle sugar mixture over apples. 

Bake 45 minutes or until topping looks crunchy and apples are tender.  Optionally serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

As we enjoy the Autumn and prepare for the Holiday season ahead of us, give thanks for the Blessings received in the past year and know that the new year to come will be full of Blessings as well.

Wishing you and yours Peace, Love and Happiness,
