Luna waxes to Full Moon on the 28th at 9:46 am Eastern Daylight Time. November’s Full Moon is variously known as the Frosty Moon or the Beaver Moon. The latter name comes from Native American skylore reminding trappers to set their final traps for the season before the beaver ponds freeze up for the winter.
