Beaver Moon is Big

The Beaver Moon comes every fall as the first full moon in November. It’s named from our forefathers as a time when the beavers are preparing their nests and coats for the winter ahead. 

There is an illusion that the moon is bigger in the horizon as it rises over the mountains and trees. This is because we compare the object to its foreground. But take a picture and compare it to the size when its farther from the horizon, guess what? It’s the same size. 

Grab a pencil and draw the moon when it looks big in the horizon. We can’t wait to see everyones unique perspectives.
