A Rare Super Worm Moon Will Be Visible Over Ontario Tomorrow

And the opportunity to watch a Full Moon rise when the equinox makes this Super Worm Equinox Moon particularly special. The Old Farmer's Almanac reports that the full moon in March is always known as the "worm moon" because it marks the time of year when earthworms begin to come out in the soil.

March's creepy full moon, called the "Super Worm Moon", will light up the night sky on the first day of spring.

Full moons in March have many names, including some drawn from Native American customs.

Wednesday's supermoon will appear just a few hours after the Vernal Equinox, which signals the changing of the seasons around the world: The transition of winter to spring in the Northern Hemisphere and summer to fall in the Summer Hemisphere.

And if this week's full moon puts an extra spring in your step, who could blame you?

"This is the closest coincidence of a full moon with the March equinox since March 2000 - 19 years ago", wrote EarthSky.org. The final supermoon of the series, there won't be another until February 2020. 2019 saw three supermoons, and they fell within the first three months of the year.

A superman during this time appears 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than normal.

The arrival of spring and the supermoon will also almost coincide with an asteroid passing close to Earth, according to the Minor Planet Center. Perigee happens because the moon's orbit is not a flawless circle, so there are times when it is relatively close to us on Earth and other times when it is comparatively far away.

A supermoon is a moon that is full when it's at perigee - the spot in its orbit where it's closest to the Earth. Also used to describe it: Crow Moon and Lenten Moon.

The "Super Worm Moon" is considered a super moon, because it will appear roughly 10 percent larger than average on Wednesday night.
