The last full moon of the winter season will be another “supermoon.”

This will be the second full moon of 2020, and because the full moon of March will occur at its closest approach to Earth, it will make it appear larger.

This month's moon is known as the Full "Worm" Moon – named by Native American tribes who kept track of the seasons by giving names to each month's full moon.

The Full "Worm" moon signals a season when the ground starts to thaw out and worms appear, but more importantly, we'll start to see milder temperatures and hopefully more sunshine.
