The March Full Moon is traditionally called the Worm Moon. While it will not actually appear pink, throughout that night, it will be the closest, biggest and brightest Full Moon of the year - the official Perigee Moon of 2020. Though it's challenging for the human eye to notice without a direct comparison.
Spectacular pictures of the "worm" supermoon have been captured lighting up the night sky by photographers around the world.
Why does such a phenomenon occur?
It refers to when the Moon is at its closest point in its orbit to Earth.
The Super Worm Moon is actually one of the heralds of the arrival of spring to the Earth. The others will be on April 7 and May 7. This coincidence occurs several times a year, albeit with varied impacts. However, at its closest, the perigee, it's 21,000 kilometres closer.
This year, the March full moon may also be the primary of three straight full-moon supermoons and the year's second-closest full moon total, EarthSky stated.
Supermoons have for milllenia been linked to many myths and legends. Supermoons focuses on a person's mind on natural beauty and the lunar cycle.
The full moon of March, known as the Worm Moon, arrived on Monday at 1:48 p.m. EDT (1748 GMT), and it reached perigee, its closest point to Earth, today (March 10) at 2:33 a.m. EDT (0633 GMT), almost 13 hours later. In this case, the March full moon was associated with the softening of the ground, which caused earthworms to begin to appear. To the settlers, it was known as the Lenten Moon, heralding spring, as it was considered the last full moon of winter.
