Full Beaver Moon rising at Neck Point Park, Nanaimo, Nov 30, 2020.

The Beaver Moon is the time to set beaver traps to collect warm furs for the winter, according to native legend.

I absolutely love when I can see the sunset and full moon rise at the same time. It was a stunning evening at Neck Point Park. I traveled from one end of the park to the other with Mouse dog in tow.

When the timing is right, you can see the moon rising brightly just after sunset. I check my weather apps for timing of the sunset and moonrise and when the sun set time is about 30 min before the moon rise, I know it will be a good one. I also check for cloud cover and I have another app that shows me where on the horizon the sun will set and rise, and the moon will rise and set. That makes it easier to know where to look for the moon when it's rising. This time, the moon rose behind the mountains which means by the time it got above the peak, it was already bright. Every full moon rise is special!

I captured these with my phone. Sometimes I use the Night mode however it almost looks fake with that mode as there is too much light that is captured.
