March full moon 2021: Catch the massive ‘Worm Moon’ (and 1st ‘supermoon’ of the 12 months) on Sunday

by akoloy


The full moon of March, referred to as the Worm Moon, will happen  on Sunday (March 28), at 2:48 p.m. EDT (1817 GMT). 

Two days later, the moon will attain perigee, the closest level to Earth in its orbit. This means the moon will seem barely bigger than standard within the evening sky and could also be known as a “supermoon” (by some definitions), according to NASA. The near-full moon may also share the sky with a planetary conjunction, however just for Southern Hemisphere skywatchers.
