In the northern hemisphere, this full moon was known by Native American tribes as the Beaver Moon because this was the time of year to set the beaver traps before the swamps and rivers froze. It has also been known as the Frosty Moon and the Dark Moon.
In the southern hemisphere, this is the Full Flower Moon. Spring is beginning to wake Mother Nature from her cold sleep. Plants in general are usually in full bloom by November and many regions might call this Full Moon by its most popular wild flower or blooming tree name. One such region calls this The Full Orchid Moon.
