FOX NEWS - Skygazers are set for a treat this week when the third and final supermoon of the year occurs.
The celestial event follows February’s ‘super snow moon’ and January’s stunning ‘super blood moon’ eclipse.
The Moon will turn full at 9:43 p.m. ET on March 20, according to EarthSky. This year the full moon occurs less than four hours after the March equinox, which marks the start of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.
March’s full moon was dubbed the ‘full worm moon’ by Native Americans because it occurs at a time of year when the ground is softening, and earthworm casts (worm manure) start to reappear, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.
