March Worm Supermoon

Full Moon on March 9th is the first (out of three) and the second-closest to Earth (distance: 357,404 km) Supermoons of 2020.

It is called the Worm Moon, the Crow Moon and the Sap Moon. In the Northern Hemisphere, with the warmer weather, the earth (and the eartworms) is slowly preparing for spring. In Soutern Hemisphere this Full Moon is known as the Full Harvest Moon.

A Supermoon or Perigee Full Moon is a Full Moon that occurs near or coincides with perigee, the point in the orbit at which the Moon is nearest to the Earth. Therefore Supermoons appear larger and brighter than usual Full Moons.
