We had clear skies over large parts of the country and while I had hopes of grandeur and dreamt of capturing the perfect lunar photo, my trusty phone camera let me down tonight.

Thankfully, people from all around the world are sharing their (much better) attempts at capturing the full worm supermoon.

Why is called a “full worm supermoon”?

Funny story that. The ‘worm’ part is because the supermoon in March coincides with the time when earthworms in the norhtern hemisphere emerge from the soft soil after winter.

It’s called a supermoon because it appears bigger and brighter than a normal full moon because the moon passes in its closes orbit to the Earth. Moreover, it was approximately 14% bigger and 30% brighter, according to NASA.
