Astronomy fans will get a chance to catch the "Super Worm Moon" on Monday.

This moon is the final full moon of winter, and it will rise on March 9. The moon will appear slightly larger than all others throughout the season, according to Accuweather.

This supermoon will be brighter and bigger than the average full moon. Accuweather warns that the difference is sometimes to small for most people to notice.

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, this moon is known for when the ground begins to soften enough for earthworm casts to reappear - inviting robin and other birds to feed, a true sign of spring.
