The first super full moon for 2021 will shine on Sunday. March's full moon is called Worm Moon, in addition, this name is taken from the American Native culture.

This phenomenon occurs when the moon is in its full stage and lies at the nearest point to the Earth, that's why the size of the moon appears to be bigger with 14% and brighter with 30%.

Regarding the best time for capturing photos of the moon is at the beginning of the night, when the moon starts to shine on the horizon immediately after the sunset.

It is worthy to mention that each full moon carries a certain definitive name related to the season of its shining. For example, January's full moon is called "Wolf Moon" due to the rise of the wolves' sounds in cold winter.

Another example is the name of April's full moon which is "Pink Moon" due to the flourishing of flowers' colors in the Spring.
