This month we have a special treat in the night sky. On Sunday the 28th we’ll see the Super Worm Moon! The usual Worm Moon of March is this year also a super moon. That means it is the closest it will come to the Earth in its elliptical orbit, making it seem even larger and brighter than usual.
It’s also the first full Moon to occur after the spring equinox on March 20, so it determines the dates of two big holidays: Passover and Easter. Passover begins on the night of the full moon after the northern spring equinox. And Easter will be celebrated on April 4, one week after what Christians call the Paschal Full Moon.
