The 'Full Worm Supermoon' marks the start of spring this week

Full moon rises in Berlin Sept. 27

At the same time, Wednesday will be the third time this year that the moon is closer to Earth than usual, which happens during a supermoon. Unfortunately, local sky observers seem likely to face increasing clouds by late Wednesday. The last time we've seen a full moon rise on the same date as an equinox was in 1981, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac.

Along with sunny, summer-like weather, the first day of spring appears to have an extra special treat in store for Metro Vancouverites: the final super moon of 2019.

In January, a "super blood wolf moon" occurred when a rare total lunar eclipse unfolded as the moon, Earth and sun lined up.

It appears especially bright when viewed through a small telescope or binoculars.

The insane thing with all this is the "full " happens on Wednesday at 8:43 p.m. local time.

And if this week's full moon puts an extra spring in your step, who could blame you?

March's full moon also happens on the same day as the spring equinox, welcoming in the season. 2019 saw three supermoons, and they fell within the first three months of the year.

At perigee - the point in the orbit of the moon or a satellite at which it is nearest to the earth - it will be 224173 miles (360,772 kms) from Earth. Higher-than-normal tides and some coastal flooding also are frequent concerns during a perigee moon.

The "Super Worm Moon" is considered a super moon, because it will appear roughly 10 percent larger than average on Wednesday night.

In Denver, the moon will rise at 6:59 p.m., 12 minutes before sunset. Clear skies are expected.
