The final supermoon of the year comes in the form of a nearby zeros asteroid


The March full moon also takes place on the same day as the spring equinox, welcoming to the season. The last time these two events occurred on the same day was in March 1981.

The moon will look brighter and bigger in the night sky and, hopefully, no clouds and bad weather will obscure the view. The closest supermoon this year was in February.

Whatever time zone you are in, wait for the supermoon at 9:43 pm ET on Wednesday.

The full moon of March is also known as Full Worm Moon. The traditional and Native American names for each full moon of the year are derived from the way they helped to keep up with the seasons. In this case, the soil began to soften in March so that the earthworms could appear, attracting more birds to feed themselves, according to the Farmer's Almanac. This moon is associated with spring for this reason.

According to the Minor Planet Center, the arrival of spring and the big moon will almost coincide with the passage of an asteroid near the Earth. The asteroid 2019 EA2 will be making its way to Earth at 190,246 miles, closer to the moon. It is 79 feet in diameter, slightly larger than the asteroid that crossed the skies over Chelyabinsk, Russia, in 2013.

It is an asteroid Aten, or an asteroid close to Earth with an orbit crossing the Earth

But the asteroid should pass unimpeded on March 21 and 22, depending on where you live.
