What is a 'full worm moon'?

Seattle-area forecast: Clear skies, warm temps and a ‘Full Worm Supermoon’ on first day of spring

Seattle-area forecast: Clear skies, warm temps and a ‘Full Worm Supermoon’ on first day of spring

Some Native American tribes also referred to this moon as the Full Crow Moon when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter, or the Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees.

This month's full moon also coincides with the spring equinox, which marks the start of the season - although meteorologists recognize March 1 as the first day of spring.

A full moon and the spring equinox haven't occurred this closely since 2000, and won't sync up again until March of 2030.

It will be the last of a trio of supermoons that kicked off the first three months of 2019.

The most recent full supermoon occurred on february 19, following one in January. As long as it's a clear evening, the moon will appear at its biggest and brightest. It's also the first supermoon in almost 20 years to fall near the spring equinox. On the West Coast, sunset is generally a little after 7 p.m.at this time of year. Full moons in March are traditionally called "worm moons" because of rising temperatures, according to the Farmer's Almanac.

Liverpool survive Fulham scare to go top of Premier League
Fulham look destined for relegation this season as they are in 19th place on the standings and 13 points adrift of safety. But like Alisson before him, Rico erred and Milner drove a redemptive spot-kick down the middle of the goal.

If you can't achieve autofocus then use your live view screen, zoom in on the moon using the live view screen and adjust your focus.

If you look up in the sky Wednesday night, you'll catch the super worm moon - and it'll be the last supermoon for a while.

At the same time, Wednesday will be the third time this year that the moon is closer to Earth than usual, which happens during a supermoon.

This image of the full moon was created with images taken by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. The next supermoons are set to light up the skies on March 9 and April 8, 2020.
