Another beautiful Supermoon has been witnessed Thursday and people just can't get enough of it. It is also called the worm moon which has reached its full phase around 9:42 am.

The Supermoon can't be something people can't just miss as it looks bigger in the night sky. "When the moon reached its full phase, it also reaches its closest distance to the Earth. It creates a kind of optical illusion. It makes the moon look bigger and brighter."

Nonetheless, it is the kind of beauty that everyone wants to see in the sky. " At perigree, when the moon is at its closest distance to the Earth, the Supermoon could look at least 14% bigger and about 30% lighter than it really is compared to our planet."

It's barely the end of the first quarter of 2019 and the Earth has already witnessed two Supermoons -- one on January 21 and  February 19.

The March Supermoon, however, is called a worm moon. They call it such because it is the term used by Native Americans and Europeans to refer to Supermoon that comes out in March. In Ancient meteorology, March is the time of the year when the earthworms come out into hiding. People can see them on the surface of the earth as it slowly thaws just a bit after post-winter.

Some people say that the Supermoon is an indication that something good is about to happen. The belief says that the light from the moon brings a different kind of energy. It empowers women and gives them a kind of push to be better. Some say it's the hormones that make women do what they do, but it isn't so far fetched when you think of it as something from the Supermoon.

It is called the Supermoon after all. Though it is known to be the supernatural that gives women the kind of feel, it remains to be a mystery to everyone. Even scientists continue to seek more information as to how the Supermoon affects and radiates its energy on Earth. This remains to be something waiting to be discovered. It is an untouched part of the scientific study but scientists are hopeful that more opportunities to understand the power of the Supermoon will come their way.

The promise of seeing another Supermoon this year might be one in a million, but in the future, there will be more of it. Each time, it will bring a certain kind of brightness that everyone will enjoy. It is not just about the bright object in the sky, but it is hoped that there is something good that will come out of it.
