There's a free telescope viewing tonight!

(SPOT.ph) We've already seen two "supermoons" in 2019: The "super blood wolf moon" in January and "super snow moon" in February. Today, March 21, you'll be able to witness another onethe last super moon of the yearas the full moon orbits at its closest point to the earth. Dubbed as the "super worm moon," the phenomenon will make the night skies just a tad bit brighter for the days to come. You'll be able to see it wherever you are as long as the skies are clear, but if you really want to get the most out of the experience, you can also drop by the Quezon Memorial Circle for a free telescope viewing at 6 p.m. tonight!

According to CNET, the name "worm moon" comes from the fact that it falls on a March equinox, which marks the beginning of spring for the northern hemisphere, a season when worms typically appear.
