Skygazers are enjoying the ‘full worm supermoon,’ the third and final supermoon of 2019.
Photographers across the globe have been capturing stunning pictures of the supersize Moon.
March’s full moon was dubbed the ‘full worm moon’ by Native Americans because it occurs at a time of year when the ground is softening, and earthworm casts (worm manure) start to reappear, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.

Supermoons happen when the Moon’s elliptical orbit brings it to the closest point to Earth while the Moon is full. The Moon became a ‘supermoon’ on March 19 when it was 223,308 miles away from Earth.
