How to see the last supermoon of 2019 on 21st March

This Supermoon rose over Michigan in 2014

The term "worm moon" is typically given to the first full moon in March, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac.

And the full worm supermoon means the moon will be orbiting at its perigee, or the closest point to Earth while remaining a full moon.

The next super moon will not occur until February 2020, according to CNET.

The equinox will occur on Wednesday, March 20 at 5:58 p.m.

Worth noting: The moon will be close to full on Tuesday night, March 19, so if the sky is clear, grab your camera and check out the view. For those trying to get a good photo of the "super worm moon", the best strategy is to aim for a time near moonrise, as the moon appears larger the closer it is to the horizon, due to an optical illusion.

As with all celestial events, it pays to be away from bright city lights which have a tendency to pollute the night sky. The next time a supermoon will coincide with the equinox will be in 11 years.

"Traditional and Native American names for each full moon of the year are derived by how they helped to track the seasons". March's full moon also happens on the same day as the spring equinox, welcoming in the season.

The March full moon is also known as a "full sap moon" - a reference to the time of year when sap starts to flow from maple trees. In fact, it can appear as much as 30 percent brighter than normal.

When asked about the weather conditions via Twitter, NWS replied: "Cloud cover looks to be pretty thick tomorrow (Wednesday) evening, so conditions for viewing the supermoon will not be ideal".

It will be the last of a trio of supermoons that kicked off the first three months of 2019.
