The full Worm Moon rises on Thursday and Friday night, March 17 and 18. What is a Worm Moon? Here are the real meaning and origins of March’s full Moon—and when you can see this Moon at its brightest!
March’s full Worm Moon reaches peak illumination at 3:20 A.M. EDT on Friday, March 18, 2022.
When to See the Full Moon in March 2022
The final full moon of the winter season will rise Thursday and Friday night. Specifically, March’s full Worm Moon reaches peak illumination at 3:20 A.M. EDT on Friday, March 18, 2022.
Of course, you don’t have to wait until the middle of the night! Look for the spectacularly bright Moon as it rises above the horizon on Thursday evening. If your weather is poor on Thursday night, try again! The Moon will also appear full Friday night. See when the Moon will be visible in your area.
If you have just a bit of rain on Thursday, March 17, you may even get to spot a rare phenomenon called a moonbow. A moonbow is just like a solar rainbow, but is created by moonlight (rather than sunlight) when it is refracted through water droplets in the air. Moonbows only happen when the full Moon is fairly low in the sky, so look for one in the hours after sunset when the sky is dark. Learn more about moonbows here!
This March Moon will look especially large to us when it’s near the horizon because of the “Moon illusion,” when it looks bigger when near comparative objects than it does when it’s high in the sky without any references.
Why Is It Called the Worm Moon?
The full Moon names used by The Old Farmer’s Almanac come from a number of places, including Native American, Colonial American, and European sources. Traditionally, each full Moon name was applied to the entire lunar month in which it occurred, not only to the full Moon.

“When it comes to luxury hotel rooms, there’s crazy and then there’s Las Vegas crazy.
Located right in the middle of one of the most unforgiving deserts in the U.S, and founded by a gangster half a century ago, Sin City is a mad town where nothing is ever too much. Or too expensive.
Las Vegas hotels often include a casino and are rebuilt, renamed and revamped every other week.
So we’ve put together a list of 10 of the most crazy expensive hotel rooms in Las Vegas right now.
10. Secret Suites at the Vdara ($1,500)
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The new and old owners of the Venetian and Palazzo casino resorts and former Sands Expo and Convention Center announced Wednesday they have completed the sale of the iconic Las Vegas Strip properties for $6.25 billion.
Apollo Global Management and Las Vegas Sands Corp. said in separate statements that gamblers, conventioneers and hotel guests should see few changes at the luxury hotel complex including the renamed Venetian Expo.
The names will remain the same and George Markantonis, CEO of The Venetian Resort, said the management team will stay in place.
“We have an exciting opportunity to build on our past successes while capturing future opportunities,” Markantonis said, citing hospitality, meetings and events, gambling and entertainment.
New York-based VICI Properties acquired assets associated with the Venetian Resort Las Vegas and the expo for $4 billion. Apollo Global Management bought Venetian operations for $2.25 billion.
Apollo executives told Nevada casino regulators last week the company will step into an ongoing partnership with Madison Square Garden Entertainment Corp. to continue development of the $1.9 billion, 17,500-seat MSG Sphere being built just east of The Venetian Expo, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Sands, the company led by Sheldon Adelson until his death last year, will effectively cease U.S. operations to focus on operations in Asia.
From Las Vegas Mafia History
“I’m sure that some old school Vegas locals remember watching this, but for those who haven’t this is one of the best Mob documentaries I’ve ever seen. I am also sure that this influenced both Martin Scorsese & Nick Pileggi to make Casino, and it shows some of the real footage that inspired some of Casino’s best scenes.PS: The old A&E show American Justice also did a great 2-hour special.”

Official video of Blondie performing Rapture from the album Autoamerican.
“Debuting in 1981, the music video was the first rap video ever broadcast on MTV. It took place in the East Village section of Manhattan.”
“Rapture” is a song by American rock band Blondie from their fifth studio album Autoamerican (1980). Written by band members Debbie Harry and Chris Stein, and produced by Mike Chapman, the song was released as the second and final single from Autoamerican on January 12, 1981, by Chrysalis Records. Musically, “Rapture” is a combination of new wave, disco and hip hop with a rap section forming an extended coda.
“Rapture” was another commercial success for the band, shipping one million copies in the United States, where it was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and spent two weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, their fourth and last single to reach number one. It was the first number-one single in the United States to feature rap vocals. The single also peaked at number three in Canada, and number five in Australia and the United Kingdom.”
“February’s Full Snow Moon reaches peak illumination at 11:59 A.M. EST on Wednesday, February 16. For the best view of this Moon, look for it that night or the night before; it will drift above the horizon in the east around sunset and reach its highest point in the sky around midnight. See when the Moon will be visible in your area.”

“The full Moon names used by The Old Farmer’s Almanac come from a number of places, including Native American, Colonial American, and European sources. Traditionally, each full Moon name was applied to the entire lunar month in which it occurred, not just to the full Moon itself.”
The Snow Moon
The explanation behind February’s full Moon name is a fairly straightforward one: it’s known as the Snow Moon due to the typically heavy snowfall that occurs in February. On average, February is the United States’ snowiest month, according to data from the National Weather Service. In the 1760s, Captain Jonathan Carver, who had visited with the Naudowessie (Dakota), wrote that the name used for this period was the Snow Moon, “because more snow commonly falls during this month than any other in the winter.”
Names for this month’s Moon have historically had a connection to animals. The Cree traditionally called this the Bald Eagle Moon or Eagle Moon. The Ojibwe Bear Moon and Tlingit Black Bear Moon refer to the time when bear cubs are born. The Dakota also call this the Raccoon Moon, certain Algonquin peoples named it the Groundhog Moon, and the Haida named it Goose Moon.
Another theme of this month’s Moon names is scarcity. The Cherokee names of Month of the Bony Moon and Hungry Moon give evidence to the fact that food was hard to come by at this time.
VegasTripping was born over blackjack wound-licking meal at Golden Nugget’s Carson Street Cafe (it’s gone now.) The idea was simple – the internet needed a no-holds-barred honest guide to Las Vegas devoid of corporate approved marketing hype. The name VegasTripping – a multi-dimensional play on letters and words – was quickly sketched out in crayon on a Keno card. The following day, May 4, 2004, we purchased the domain name VegasTripping.com.
