The Super Worm Moon will be visible across the UK on March 28 at around 8pm.
Unfortunately, the weather in London is currently forecast to be cloudy – so it may be harder to see.
Be sure to keep an eye on weather updates, and to have a look outside your window anyway – you could get lucky!
Here’s everything you need to know about the Super Worm Moon:
What is a Supermoon?
The moon is called a Supermoon because it is at its closest to earth, appearing brighter and bigger than usual.
Full moons occur when the moon is on the opposite side of the earth to the sun during its rotation.
Supermoons occur when this event coincides with the moon being at its closest point to the earth – known as the perigee.
There will be four Supermoons in 2021.
What is a Super Worm Moon?
March’s full moon is always known as the Worm Moon.
This is because it is named after the earthworms that emerge as the ground thaws.
The full moon invites robins and birds to feed on the worms – considered the beginning of spring.
This year the Worm Moon is a Super Worm Moon because March’s full moon is also a Super Moon
How to see the Super Worm Moon?
As long as the weather is clear, the Super Worm Moon will be hard to miss.
