Super Worm Moon, one of the brightest full moon images of the Moon, will be seen tonight in its brightest state in Europe and Asia.

Southern tribes called this the worm moon after the earthworms that appear as the ground begins to thaws.

There's the blue moon, the full moon, the super moon. and also THE WORM MOON. However, a full moon may not necessarily be a supermoon because the Moon revolves in an elliptical orbit around the Earth. The closest supermoon of the century will occur on December 6, 2052. Both will be full micromoons, and so, they will appear smaller, and not as bright as more typical full moon. The moon will be at apogee on March 24, making it a new micromoon. This is also the time when birds return eating again, signaling the start of spring.

February: Snow Moon to coincide with heavy snow. The "worm moon" happens in March when the ground is warming after winter and the worms either come out of hibernation or new baby worms are born from eggs a year ago. This year boasts four full moons - including this one and another last month - that meet the Supermoon designation threshold based on the orb's position in its orbit around the Earth.

May: Flower Moon because of the abundance of blossoms.

The next supermoon is scheduled to appear on April 8th.
