It is actually about a rather odd term used for the gorgeous moon I saw last night.
It began rising behind my neighbor's roof
Nor the detail of the moon itself, because of position and lighting, but it was SO beautiful to see in person!
I had to get on top of a kitchen chair to get the best advantage possible .. hoped the neighbors didn't see too much of that.
"It's given the name "worm moon" because the end of Winter is when little creatures like worms resume squirming out of the ground and getting eaten by birds.
Supermoons happen when a the Moon is closest to the Earth, appearing bigger and brighter than normal - up to 15% brighter and 30% bigger than regular full moons"
Tom Kerss, an astronomer at the Royal Observatory Greenwich, said it is a rare event for a supermoon to coincide with the equinox. “We have been looking at the records for the occurrence of what we call supermoons today. The last time that this occurred so close to the point of the equinox was in the year 1905, in March over 100 years ago,” he said, although he noted the term “supermoon” is a recent term. “It looks to us that the next time we see this with the spring equinox, at least, won’t occur until the year 2144. So for most of us this could be called a once in a lifetime coincidence.”
Amazing right ? ... for any of us who were fortunate enough to witness this event, it truly was a once in a life time occurrence for us to see and record with our own cameras ..
