Let's hike Mt Sanitas on first day of spring and watch the super worm moon.

The Moon will appear larger and brighter than normal due to being at perigee (its closest point to the Earth during its elliptic orbit).

Native Americans named the full Moon in March "full worm moon" because it coincides with the time when the ground begins to soften and earthworms start to emerge.

The Moon will become full at 7.43pm MT, just a few hours after the equinox (3:58:27pm), the start of spring for the Northern Hemisphere.

Please, bring headlamps and warm layers.
