Full Worm Moon is up there

(Scott Dance, The Baltimore…)
March 08, 2012|By Scott Dance

You may not be able to see it through the rain clouds tonight, but a waning moon just past its fullest is up there.

Luckily, I snapped a shot of it last night. The moon was technically "full" at 4:40 a.m. Thursday. It rises at 6:50 p.m. Thursday.

March's full moon is known as the Worm Moon or the Sap Moon, for coming as worms begin to slither through softened ground and maple sap begins to run again.
