Full Worm Moon

Don't forget to take time out of your busy evening and check out the Full Worm Moon tonight. It is called the Worm Moon because, as the Sun increasingly warms the soil, earthworms become active and their castings (excrement) begin to appear. Also, NASA is calling it the SUPER Moon because it is about 14% bigger and 30% brighter then normal. This has not happened since 1993 and won't happen again for another 29 years. Have a great evening.

  1. Last night's full moon rising was spectacular. I tried to get a picture of it...but it slipped beneath some wispy clouds and was gone. Have a great week....Spring is coming....I just know it is!!
