There's Going To Be A Super Worm Moon Tonight And It Might Make You Extra Emotional
We're set to be graced with the second supermoon of the year tonight as the Worm Moon will light up the sky.
Expected to be visible from 5.35pm, the full moon will appear a whopping 14 per cent bigger than usual, and is sure to be a sight to behold.
This is because its orbit will be closer to the earth that normal, meaning it is also expected to be 30 per cent brighter.
Luckily, despite the fact today is going to be cloudy, the visibility in most of the UK's big cities, including Manchester, London, Liverpool, Leicester and Bristol is set to be either good or moderate, so the weather shouldn't get in the way of you seeing the moon in all its glory.
Known as the Worm Moon due to the fact that earthworms emerge from the thawing ground at the beginning of spring, the celestial sight has also been dubbed the Full Sap Moon - due to the fact it's the time of year in winter/early spring when the sap starts falling off the trees.
These names were given by the Native Indian farmers as a way to track the seasons.

But it's not a visual phenomenon that's been recognised through the ages. According to New York based astrologer, Lisa Stardust, the moon could also have a powerful affect on our emotions.
"This luminary is a supermoon because of the close proximity the Moon will be with the Earth. The Moon will look bigger and will make us feel more emotional," she tells us.
"This particular Super Worm Full Moon will bring all of our inner truths to light. We'll find out a lot of secrets and information that have been permeating in our energetic sphere.
"Indiscretions will be revealed, in our lives and others. Emotions will be heightened, leading to a call to clarity and boundaries.
"The next direction we need to take will be confusing. But, we will know no matter the direction or path we choose that we'll need to change.
"Mercury ends its retrograde journey the same day, adding extra fogginess."
Keep your eyes peeled and your wits about you tonight, folks!
