This month’s full moon peaks at 1:48 p.m. on Monday, March 9.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the March moon is known as the full Worm Moon.

The Almanac said, “As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter; or the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night.”

Of course, we can disregard that one this year, since we pretty much had a snowless winter. 

A couple more names from the Almanac include: “The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. To the settlers, it also was known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full Moon of winter.”

Tomorrow is supposed to be a beautiful, sunny day, with the highest temperatures we’ve experienced in a while. Enjoy your day, and enjoy the beautiful full moon.
