The full moon of this month will be the first supermoon of this year. This is an astronomical phenomenon in which the moon is slightly closer to the earth, so it appears larger and brighter in the sky.

Native American tribes in the South call the full moon that occurs in March the “worm”

; moon because the epidermis (soil digested by the worm) becomes visible when the ground thaws.

According to “Earth Sky” data, this year’s “Worm” super moon is the fourth brightest moon in 2021. It reached its highest point at 2:48 PM Eastern Time on Sunday.
