Many parts of the world witnessed a brighter Moon this week, which also marked the beginning of the spring season. The Worm Moon – a rather unusual name – began shining brighter from Wednesday evening and will continue to spread its light till Saturday morning.
The peak occurred at 3.18am EDT on Friday (12.45pm IST), according to NASA. However, it was not visible in India because it’s usually brightest in the afternoon.
This year’s Worm Moon is also a Supermoon and occurs two days before the Spring Equinox, also known as the Vernal Equinox, on March 20.
