Full Worm Supermoon: When to See in Boulder
The full worm supermoon is aptly named for when spring hits and worms begin digging out of the ground; this is also a good time to begin planting your garden!
The supermoon will be the second supermoon of 2020, with two more to be expected soon. You’ll be able to see the moon best on Monday, weather permitting.
Right now, the forecast is calling for partly cloudy skies and cool temperatures, but as long as it doesn’t get too cloudy you should be able to see the moon from just about anywhere in Boulder.
A supermoon occurs when the moon is closest to the Earth while orbiting, causing it to look bigger and brighter.
The supermoon effect is an illusion, or trick of the eye. The moon can make for slightly stronger tides, and they’ll look super under the light of a silvery moon, but that happens with every full moon.
One other thing to look forward to in April, besides the supermoon, is the beginning of spring and summer meteor showers.
