Full Moon This Weekend November 16-17, 2013

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida -- There will be a Full Moon this weekend on Saturday, November 16, 2013 beginning with a moonrise over the Atlantic at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.  

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.
