After a long, dark winter of 2018 - 2019, we finally welcome spring tomorrow, Wednesday, March 20th.

Not only will we get exactly 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night, but another bright, full super moon will fill the sky, too.

We've heard a lot about super moons these last few months, thanks to our moon's unusually close proximity to Earth, and we'll get another chance to check it out if the weather cooperates tomorrow.

2019 Spring Equinox

Spring 2019 officially begins tomorrow (March 20th, 2019) at 5:58 p.m.

 

"Super Worm Equinox Moon"

Yup, that's what they're calling it.

But fancy names aside, the important thing to know is that tomorrow night at 9:42 p.m. the moon will be considered officially full, and again thanks to our natural satellite's close proximity to us, will be big and bright.

 

Full Moon On The Spring Equinox

The full moon falling on the day of the spring equinox is actually pretty rare. In fact, The Old Farmer's Almanac points out that it last happened 19 years ago.

How rare is it? The Almanac says that it only happens about three times a century!

This is also the final super moon of 2019, too. Last month's full moon was the biggest and brightest that we'll get for another 7 years, so set those reminders for 2026!
