Which Moon is This ?

Post by admin » Sat Mar 02, 2019 1:41 pm

Many Moons are given specific designations or names relevant to the time of year they occur.

For example, the Full Moon in March is called the “Worm Moon”, or variously the “Lenten Moon”, “Chaste Moon” and so on. These names are given (relevant to the Northern Hemisphere) as this time of year marked the end of Winter.

This article gives some really good information about this next Full Moon this month, and others during the course of the year, along with their traditional names: https://www.timeanddate.com/astronomy/moon/worm.html
