Super moon wows around the world

This total lunar eclipse accompanied the first in a trilogy of super moons in 2019

The reason March's full moon is the "Worm Moon"?

The third and final super moon of 2019 will light up the United Kingdom skies tonight and is set to offer up the biggest view of the celestial satellite for almost a year. The last time these two things happened on the same day was March 1981. A super moon doesn't necessarily look bigger to the human eye - except when it looms near the horizon - but it does tend to appear brighter. The closest supermoon this year was in February. Did you know that each supermoon gets a unique name? This one is being named 'Worm Moon.' You can actually check out the name for each of the full moons during the year HERE. This is a tradition that dates back to Native American traditions, when tribes kept track of the seasons by naming each of the full moons.

The arrival of spring and the supermoon will also almost coincide with an asteroid passing close to Earth, according to the Minor Planet Center.

Unfortunately what we'll be seeing here in the southern hemisphere won't quite be the same as what people in the northern hemisphere will be seeing but according to ancient wisdom, we'll still feel the sacred lunar effects of the Super Worm Equinox Moon.

It's an aten asteroid, or a near-Earth asteroid with an Earth-crossing orbit, but the asteroid is expected to pass by safely and without incident on March 21 and 22, depending on where you live.
