You might see your neighbors or friends looking up on Monday, March 9. They likely would be looking for the next supermoon, which is set to appear in the sky.
According to the Old Farmers Almanac, a supermoon appears larger than a typical full moon due to it being closer to Earth. Native Americans often named the full moons to track seasons.
The March full moon has been named “Full Worm Moon,” because earthworms appear as a sign of spring, “Full Crow Moon,” with crows cawing, signaling the beginning of spring and “Full Sap Moon,” signaling the flow of sugar maple tree sap, according to the website, House Beautiful.
The Old Farmers Almanac lists Full Moons for 2020:
- Full Worm Moon will occur on March 9
