Don’t Miss This Weekend’s Worm Moon! When To See & Last Year’s Photos

A big, full moon rising up from a hill against an evening sky.

While it might not sound pretty, the upcoming worm moon is going to be a beautiful sight to behold! That’s what we call the first full moon of spring. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, there are many different names for this moon that come from different Native American tribes. The nickname “worm moon” might refer to a couple of different bugs that come out during this time of year. Earthworms and beetle larvae both tend to make an appearance in the spring.

If you want to catch a glimpse of the worm moon this weekend, keep your eyes open at night on Sunday, March 24. However, if you happen to miss it, you’ll still be able to see it the following night. In the meantime, check out these great shots of last year’s worm moon from around the world!
