Full Worm Moon OFA

In March 2020, the full Moon is called the Full Worm Moon! This Moon follows February’s Full Snow Moon.

Why Is It Called the Full Worm Moon? The month of March marks the transition from winter to spring, when nature awakens from its slumber and “springs” forth! At this time of year, the warming weather brings out the earthworms and grubs, which the patient American robins have been waiting for all winter long. 

When to See It: This year, the Full Worm Moon reaches peak fullness in the afternoon of Monday, March 9. It will reach peak fullness at 1:48 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time on the 9th. For the best view of this full Moon, go outside the night of the 8th (Sunday) or the 9th (Monday) and look up!
