'Super worm equinox moon' will be the last supermoon of 2019

The second supermoon of the year happened in February

The third and last supermoon of the year called "worm moon' is expected to make the night sky extra brighter starting tonight".

When the moon is significantly closer to the Earth than average it's called a supermoon.

Space.com reports that for people on the U.S. East Coast, the moon will rise about 20 minutes before sunset, by 7 p.m. local time, and the moon will set the next morning at around 7:30 a.m.

The moon will appear brighter and bigger in the night sky and hopefully no clouds and inclement weather will obscure the view.

Hot finish for McIlroy ties him for lead with Fleetwood at Players
At the 181-yard par-3 13th, Rahm hit a tee shot 190 yards at the green, setting himself up for the 12-foot putt for birdie. Holding a one-shot lead, no one would have criticized McIlroy if he made a decision to hit a 3-wood off the tee.

The moon's distance from the Earth changes because its orbit isn't a circle. And when the full moon coincides with perigee, you've got a supermoon. It's become an increasingly more popular and media-friendly term in the decades since then.

The Worm Moon has also been referred to as the Crow Moon, Crust Moon, Sap Moon or Sugar Moon.

Every month, the full moon has a different name.

Supermoons in themselves aren't particularly rare: they usually happen a few times a year. "Their names were applied to the entire month in which each occurred".

"Man City are a great team and they are fighting for the title and, like us, in the Champions League and the FA Cup ". United are set to enter the worldwide break sat outside the Champions League spots.

"A lot of the names that are used to describe the full moons throughout the year come from a native North American tradition so things like the appearance of wolves or the snow", said Tom Kerss, an astronomer at the Royal Observatory Greenwich.

Thursday's event also marks the March equinox, which is the precise moment the sun's rays shine directly on the equator.

So it's an "equal night", which is where the word equinox originated: the two Latin words aequus (equal) and nox (night), according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

On Wednesday 20 March the full moon will be at its closest point to Earth.
