There is a lot of news lately about the sky and the happenings that we are going to experience here on Earth. Earlier today there was a full moon. This time of the year, a full moon is called a "Worm Full Moon".

'Full Worm Moon'

This particular full moon also has to do with the date of Easter this year. Easter occurs on the Sunday after the "Paschal Full Moon", which is the first full moon to occur after the Vernal Equinox. According to the Farmer's Almanac, the term "Worm Moon" was initially thought to have to do with earthworms coming out in the spring. After more research, they found another possible explanation from Captain Jonathan Carver from the 1760s who spent time with Native American tribes and wrote about a different kind of worm, beetle larvae, which starts to emerge from trees when they start to thaw out in the spring.
