Final supermoon of 2019 to appear over Canadian skies this week

The sun was shining on Victoria Park in London Ont. on the first day of spring 2019

The moon's rotation will bring it 14,000 miles closer to earth, and it'll look 14% bigger and 30% brighter than usual, according to USA Today. "You may also notice that on the equinox, the sun rises directly in the east and sets directly in the west, whereas at other times in the year, it appears off-center if you're facing those directions".

The next supermoon won't be until 2020 - so be sure to watch it one way or another!

On March 20, 2019, sky-gazers will be able to see a celestial event known as the "Super Worm Moon", according to National Geographic. It is also sometimes referred to as the full sap moon, marking the time of year when sugar maples begin to release their sap.

According to NASA, the super moon will only be visible for a few hours this Wednesday and should appear "slightly larger" in the sky. In the Northern Hemisphere, the equinox is the official start of spring, but in the Southern Hemisphere, it marks the beginning of autumn.

Google introduced this year's seasonal series protagonist, Quinn, with the spring equinox doodle. On March 20, the moon will be just 223,309 miles away from Earth. Both these days witness equal day and night timings - both the days when the sun is directly above the equator.

The Worm Moon will be full at 9:43 p.m. Wednesday

The full Super Moon is seen in the sky over NY on January 21, 2019.

"The equinox occurs when the Earth reaches a point in its orbit around the sun where the sun's rays fall directly on the equator", Samuhel said. June solstice and December solstice mark the start of the other two seasons.

It's also one of only two days each year that nearly every spot on Earth - except the poles - experiences a sunrise at due east and a sunset at due west.

The equinox would be at 3:28 am (IST) on March 21, less than four hours before the supermoon arrives.

That will be almost 5 hours after the exact moment of the spring equinox at 5:58 p.m.
