The Worm Moon of March 20th

I knew we were going to have a super moon with the beginning of spring. But I learned some new things at 'space.com'. - https://www.space.com/34515-supermoon-guide.html, such as that the moon I photographed the evening of the 21st was called a 'worm moon', don't ask me why. Below is a quote from the 'space.com' website:

("This year skywatchers will get to witness three supermoons in a row on Jan. 21, Feb. 19 and March 20."

"A supermoon occurs when a full moon coincides with the moon's perigee, or the point in its elliptical orbit at which it is closest to Earth. This makes the moon appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual."

"The first supermoon of 2019 was the Super Blood Wolf Moon on Jan. 20-21, which coincided with a total lunar eclipse, also known as a "blood moon." A second supermoon of 2019 will follow on Tuesday, Feb. 19, during the Snow Moon, which will be the closest full moon of the year. Then on March 20 at 9:43 p.m. EDT (0143 GMT March 21) , the Worm Moon will reach full phase about 29 hours after the moon reaches perigee.

Nice shot Vern. I was going to do the same but some overcast crept in preventing a clear shot of the "Worm Moon".
