The Times - Serving Waitsburg, Dayton and the Touchet Valley

Photos from: Reader photo of the week

Ray Brown

Dayton photographer captured this photo of this full moon finishing off the first day of spring. This was the third time this year that a full moon has occured near the moon's closest approach, making it a Supermoon. This will be the last Supermoon of 2019. It is very rare for a Supermoon to coincide with the spring equinox. The next such event will be in 2144. According to the Farmer's Almanac, the moon is called a Super Worm Moon because, as the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of robins. In January, viewers saw a Super Blood Wolf Moon eclipse and February's supermoon was knowns as a Snow Moon.
