Moon at Perigee over Genzyme Building, Allston, MA.
I caught this moonset just before dawn after clouds had obscured the moonrise earlier that night. It was the brightest moon since 1993.
From the Farmer’s Almanac: “As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. For this reason, the March full moon is often known as the Full Worm Moon. Northern Native American tribes knew this moon as the Full Crow Moon when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is a Colonial American variation.”
