This month’s full moon — which officially turns full at 1:08 p.m. EDT Sunday. We will see it rise at 06:08:24 p.m.
This one is called the “Full Worm Moon.” The name comes from the appearance of earthworms as the ground softens after winter thaws.
Interesting NOTE and WEB Event
On Sept. 11, 2013, a space rock slammed into the moon traveling at an estimated 37,900 mph (61,000 km/h). This record-breaking impact triggered the brightest lunar explosion ever witnessed.
The online Slooh community telescope website will use the full moon event to examine the impact site in the Mare Nubium lunar basin.
