The March Full Moon is named "Worm Moon", along with "Crow Moon", "Sap Moon" and "Lenten Moon".

"There is this cool kind of illusion that happens where your brain thinks the moon looks bigger if you can see it near the horizon, because our brains compare it to trees and close objects", she said.
A supermoon takes place when the moon is full and its orbit at its perigee point is closest to Earth. AccuWeather reports the next supermoon isn't set to rise until february 9, 2020.
