The year's third super moon was seen in the sky March 20. A moon is considered to be "super" when it is both a full moon and at it's closest point to earth during its orbit. This third super moon occurred soon after the vernal equinox. The lunar happenings have gained extra adjectives over time from blue, to blood, to wolf. This particular super moon was referred to as the worm moon.
