Full Worm Moon

Get Ready for the Full Worm Moon!

Full Worm Moon OFA

In March, 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 illumination in the afternoon of Sunday, March 28, at 2:50 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time. For the best view of this full Moon, go outside the night of the 17th (Saturday) or the 28th (Sunday) and look up! The Moon will rise above the horizon after sunset.
