First Spring Equinox Super Moon in 20 Years
March 20, 2019 5:04PM CDT
Those enjoying the first day of Spring have something else to look forward to tonight. The first Spring equinox supermoon in 20 years will light up the sky, assuming your area isn’t cloudy. Our chances are not looking good at this point.
The moon’s orbit is oval. So, tonight’s moon will appear 14 percent larger and 12 percent brighter than usual due to its close proximity to earth, according to National Geographic. This will be the last supermoon 2019.
There were two others on January 21 and February 19.
