The last full moon of winter is going to occur Monday night. Known by many names, it is the closest full moon to the spring equinox and also marks the first of three consecutive super moons in the year.
The appearance of the supermoon won't last long, but if you're not able to catch a glimpse tonight, the next one is set to occur on April 8th 2020. The full moon on April 8 will make the closest pass with only a distance of 221,851 miles from Earth.
The worm moon is just another name for the March's full moon.
Siegel explained that the difference in brightness between a super moon and an average full moon is 15%. Worm moon usually marks the end of winter - marking the cold, dark period of the year and commencing a new cycle in the natural world.
Through Wednesday, a full worm supermoon will be visible in the sky.
The second closest full supermoon will reach its peak tonight. It is also known as Sap Moon, Crow Moon, Crust Moon, Sugar Moon, and Lenten Moon - so take your pick.
If you spot what appears to be a bright star low in the sky to the west, that's actually Venus.

Both will be full micromoons, and so, they will appear smaller, and not as bright as more typical full moon.
So why is it called the Super "Worm" Moon?
June: Strawberry Moon because it appeared when the strawberry harvest first took place.
A Full Moon is considered to exaggerate these emotions, leading to a mix of miracles, mayhem, and irrationality.
