According to NASA, March 20th marked the spring equinox, one of two seasonal markers in Earth’s year-long orbit when the Sun appears to shine directly over the equator, and daytime and nighttime are nearly equal lengths–12 hours–everywhere on the planet. That means… The Supermoon!
You probably saw a lot of bright moon images on your Instagram feed. Well, the March Equinox brings the last supermoon of 2019.
What is a Supermoon? It happens when the full moon coincides with the moon's closest approach to Earth in its orbit. Supermoons make the moon appear a little brighter and closer than normal. The first supermoon of 2019 was the Super Blood Wolf Moon on Jan. 20-21. The second supermoon occurred on Feb. 19 and a third was last night.
We will not see another Supermoon until February 2020.
