The third and final supermoon of 2019 set Thursday morning. The “super worm equinox moon,” as it’s known, is the first supermoon in nearly 20 years to fall near the spring equinox. Full moons in March are traditionally called “worm moons” because of rising temperatures, according to the Farmer’s Almanac.

Here’s what the super moon looked like in Boston, across the country, and across the world.
