Just in case you missed this important news, this is an alert from SMBAS blog that the full moon on March 8 at 1:39 a.m., only 4 days ago was the Full Worm Moon. Here is the explanation for this significant event.

In this month, the ground softens and the earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of the robins. The more northern tribes called this the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signals the end of winter, or the Full Crust Moon because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time to tap maple trees, is another variation.

The next significant full moon will occur on April 6 at 7:21 a.m. PDT. Keep an eye on this spot for additional breaking news on this unprecedented event.

But that’s way too long to type in, so don’t bother going there.
