Full Moon 2021: Where is best to view the Full Worm Moon?


March 28 will see a Full Moon rise once again as the Worm Moon adorns the night sky. The Worm Moon, also known as the Crow Moon, Crust Moon, Sap Moon and the Sugar Moon.

All the names have a similar meaning, with the gist of it being that they kick off springtime and the end of winter.

For example, Native Americans in the south called it the Worm Moon as they believed it was a time when the ground began to thaw, making it easier for worms to rear their heads from the Earth.

Native Americans in the North called it the Crow Moon when the cawing of crows signalled the end of winter.

Holiday resort Parkdean has offered some handy tips on the best way to see the Worm Moon, which will peak at 7.48pm.

The first tip is to “get up high”, Parkdean said in a statement.

The statement added: “The further up you are, the better your chance of a clear sky to see the stars, plus you’ll be able to see low down to the horizon to watch the Moon rise!

“Take a hike in your local area and explore the surroundings to find the perfect stargazing spot!

“The further you are away from light pollution the better chance you’ll have of seeing the stars.
