Did you see Wednesday’s amazing ‘Super Sugar Moon’?

Elston Hill did, and he photographed it in the morning as it rose over the Olympic mountains.

This full moon is called the ‘Super Sugar Moon’ because this is the time of year when sugary-sweet sap starts to leak from maple trees. It’s also called the ‘Super Worm Moon’ because this is the time of year when earthworms (and hungry Robins) start appearing.

It also rose on the first day of spring.

This is the final supermoon of 2019, which is a full moon that occurs at its perigee, the point in the moon’s orbit when it is closest to the earth, making it appear bigger and brighter in the sky.
