See the ‘super worm equinox moon,’ the last supermoon of 2019

Are you ready for the third and final supermoon of 2019 falling on the same evening as an equinox?

The Super Worm Equinox Moon is also known as the Sap Moon, Sugar Moon, and Lenten Moon and it will shine brighter a little brighter starting on Tuesday

The full moon of March occurs on Wednesday, March 20, at 9:43 p.m. EDT (0143 March 21 GMT) – but will appear full the night before and after its peak to the casual stargazer.

March’s full moon will occur on the same day as the spring equinox, according to The Farmer’s Almanac. They occur about 4 hours apart, the closest since March 1981.

Supermoons occur when the moon is full or nearly full and also at its closest point to Earth along its slightly elliptical orbit, according to NASA.

The moon will appear extra vibrant because it is lower in the sky, at its closest point to Earth, which also makes it appear larger.

If the weather or life doesn’t cooperate where you are, you can also watch a live stream of the event via the Virtual Telescope Project embed from Rome above.

If you miss it, you’ll have to wait until February 2020 for the next supermoon.
