The final supermoon of the year is coming this week and it’s happening just a short time after the official start of spring.
Spring begins this Wednesday, March 20 at 5:58 p.m. EDT.
The supermoon — this one is called the Super Worm Moon– will happen at 9:43 p.m. EDT — several hours after the official start of spring.
Space.com reports that for people on the U.S. East Coast, the moon will rise about 20 minutes before sunset by 7 p.m. local time and moonset will be the next morning at around 7:30 a.m.
Whether or not we will be able to see it all depends on cloud cover. **Follow the latest forecast, here**
The supermoon comes a day after the moon reaches perigree, the closest point to Earth, making the full moon a supermoon, which makes it appear slightly larger than the full moon usually does.
The ‘Worm Moon’ reportedly got its name due to the ground beginning to thaw and earthworms reappearing.
