"Super" full moon on March 19, 2011 Equinox!

March 18, 2011

The March full moon is known as the Full Worm Moon or the Sap Moon, heralding the return of Spring in the northern hemisphere, on the Vernal Equinox that will occur on March 20, 2011. During the Spring (and Fall) Equinox, the day and night are of equal length.

This full moon will be extra special, as it’s the closest the Moon has been to the Earth during it’s full phase in about 18 years! It will be 14% bigger than usual! So, I’ll see if I can get any good video of it to share and post here.
