BERLIN, GERMANY – FEBRUARY 27: A full moon shines on February 27, 2021, in Berlin, Germany.
The Moon Worm is also a supermoon, which occurs while the moon is at or near the path closest to Earth, making it look bigger and lighter in the skies.
For Mother Nature to put a blanket of dense clouds over the horizon, next week’s case should be a breeze to watch.
Super Worm Moon arrives a little longer than expected
On Sunday night, March 28, the moon rises in the eastern sky at 7:48 pm Universal Time.
According to WJHL, the full moon of March occurs in winter, before the spring equinox. It happens this year in the spring.
The sun completely illuminates the visibility of the Earth’s face on the night of the Full Moon, Express.co.uk said.
The moon goes through eight distinct phases every 29.53 days, called the lunar cycle.
Why is it called a true worm moon?
As the Northern Hemisphere enters spring, March is a seasonal month, with the days getting longer and warmer. The full moon in March is called the “Shifting Moon” because of the changing climate.
The range continues to release enough for worm legs to reappear at this time of year, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac website.
The Old Farmer’s Almanac said the full moon would invite different robbers and birds to feed as the start of the spring season.

This is just one of the many nicknames given to the full moon in March over the years.
“One such name is the Full Moon Sap, because that is the time of year when the juice of sugar maples begins to flow,” continued the Old Farmer’s Almanac.
Native Americans, according to the Royal Greenwich Observatory, call the worm moon as the worm trails would normally be in the recently melted soil.
Some of the Moon’s moon names are Crust Moon, Crow Moon, Lenten Moon, and Sleepy Moon.
This full moon is significant, according to The Telegraph. The phase of that moon is used to determine the date of Easter, which is often the Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox. This year, the Moon Worm is the first full moon after the spring equinox, so Easter Sunday will be a week away, on April 4th.
Some might see this full moon as a supermoon. This is because it is the fourth closest full moon this year. The next three larger moons will be together, with the supermoon in May as the official one.
How to watch the Super Moon
Want to see the Super Worm Moon but not sure how to do it? Make sure you are in a light, polluted place, such as a garden area away from street lights. A telescope can have a clearer view, so those lucky enough to have it can put it in the backyard.
