The Full Worm Moon got it’s name from native American tribes long ago when they noticed earthworms and saw flocks of robins in the fields eating them. This signaled the approach of spring.
The Full Worm Moon of 2011, also being called a supermoon, will reach fullness tonight on March 19th. At this time earth and the moon nudges closer to each other and will be viewed as the biggest full moon in nineteen years. This moon at Perigee will appear 14 percent larger to the people of earth than it has since 1992. With the right atmospheric conditions, the Full Worm Moon of 2011 might also appear brighter.
