Full Moon Tonight – November 16, 2013
CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida — There will be a Full Moon tonight on Saturday, November 16, 2013 beginning with a moonrise over the Atlantic at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (with a few minutes of variation depending on your exact location). The Full Moon will technically be 99.8% full at 10:16 a.m. after it sets the following Sunday morning at 6:40 a.m. A Full Moon in November has seasonal names such as a “Beaver’s Moon” or “Frosty Moon.”
For those planning a moonlit stroll along the beach on the U.S. East Coast, this Full Moon brings along with it a 4.5-foot Atlantic Ocean high tide that will occur around 6:30 p.m., with a few minutes of variation depending on your exact location. A very low tide will occur just after midnight.
