The night sky is closing out the last week of winter — and St. Patrick’s Day — with a full moon!

March’s full worm moon rises on the night of March 17-18, according to AccuWeather.

It gets its odd nickname because earthworms begin to resurface as milder spring air arrives in areas that endured a long, cold winter.

March’s full moon has several other nicknames, including the wind strong moon, the sugar moon, the eagle moon and the goose moon, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.

It follows Feburary’s snow moon, and the pink moon comes next in April.
