Native Americans of the Northeast called March’s full moon the “Worm Moon.”
March’s Full Moon
The moon is so named because it is the time of year when worms first appear. Birds also arrive to feast on the worms.
We are approaching the March equinox, the halfway point between winter and spring in the northern hemisphere. The equinox is the day when the length of day and night is equal in both northern and southern hemispheres.
The Next Worm Moon
The next worm moon is Tuesday, March 7, 2023. It reaches peak fullness at 7:42am.
