Worm Moon



Under a Full Moon ~ Man in the Moon

A full moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon are on opposite sides of the Earth at the same time. Occurring on a 29.53-day cycle, the full lunar phase in each month is known by many different names depending on the culture or religion.

The full moon in March is known as the Worm Moon. It is usually the last full moon of winter in the northern hemisphere.

It is also commonly known as the Lenten Moon, Crow Moon, Sap Moon, Sugar Moon, Death Moon or Crust Moon.

Buddhists refer to the March full moon as Medin Poya while Hindus call it Basanta Poornima.

In 2012, the March full moon will occur at 9:39am (UT) on Thursday the 8th.


Man in the Moon

Look at what's rising: Luna, Selene, man in the Moon.

Much of the universe, as we know it, is strange and distant, full of lifeless orbs and wild cataclysms and dark voids. We know little about the quasars and nebulae and supernovae of outer space. Through our telescopes we peer at stars and planets and galaxies, but how well do we really know them? We can only see what we can see.

The moon is different. It is closer to us than any other heavenly object, both physically and imaginatively. It has been part of our stories and dreams since the dawn of time. It's the stuff of nursery rhymes.
