COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – For the first time in 19 years, the moon over Colorado Springs will be a super worm equinox moon.
Don't know what that means? We looked into it.
Video in the early morning hours.
Colleen Parith with the Space Foundation said the best time to watch is " right at dusk when the moon rise starts, that's when you're going to want to look
To be exact the moon will be 14 percent bigger. It's called a moon elusion. There is no reason why it happens, but it's probably because people compare the size of the moon to things along the horizon. It's a supermoon because the moon is closest to earth in its orbit. But what the deal with the worm?
" The worm moon is always the March full moon and that's because it's springtime. The earth is getting softer and the earthworms are starting to show out in the ground, " Parith Said.
This being the third supermoon of the year, why is everyone getting so worked up?
That's why we won't see a super worm equinox moon until March 2030.
] Parith said the best way to view the supermoon is to get up in the mountains away from the bright city lights.
