Full Beaver Moon 

On the night of November 26, the moon shines in front of the constellation Aries the Ram. But the glare of the almost-full waxing gibbous moon will make the mighty Ram look sheepish in the moon-drenched sky. Meanwhile, that brilliant point of light to the east of the moon tonight is the giant planet Jupiter. Look here for more about the moon and Jupiter. Plus, have you seen the planets before dawn? Saturn and Venus appear(ed) closest together in the east before dawn on the morning of November 26. Mercury is now creeping out of the dawn, and Mercury will join the planets in the predawn sky next week.

This November 2012 full moon, by the way, will be the smallest and most distant full moon of the year. Seven full moons ago – on May 6, 2012 – it was the closest and largest full moon of 2012. Some people called it a supermoon. The November 2012 full moon will reside about 50,000 kilometers (30,000 miles) farther away than the May 2012 full moon.(Source)
