If you look to the eastern sky this evening for the rising of our full moon this month, you will see the planet Jupiter right above the full moon.  Yes, it is not a star, but a planet!

Also, this moon is called the full “Beaver” moon because it is this time of the year that the beavers prepare for the onset of winter.  The Native Americans also call this full moon, the full “Frosty” moon.
