Native Americans dubbed it the "full worm moon" since it appears when the ground begins to soften and earthworm manure starts to appear, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac.
The moon's rotation will bring it 14,000 miles closer to earth, and it'll look 14% bigger and 30% brighter than usual, according to USA Today. There was a lunar eclipse in January and the largest supermoon of the year was in February.
In the northern hemisphere, the March equinox - since it marks the end of winter and ushers in a warmer climate - is called Vernal or Spring Equinox.
Worms: Funny enough, March's full moon has a nickname: Full Worm Moon.
PAGASA said the phenomenon will be seen clearly as the weather is expected to be fair. During the equinox, both day and night are balanced to almost 12 hours each all over the world.
It will be the third time this year a full moon has occurred near to the moon's closest approach to the Earth - making it a supermoon - and will be the last such event in 2019.

Owing to Earth's tilted axis, the plane on which the Earth rotates and the one on which the sun is are not the same.

The last time they fell on the same date was on 20 March 1981. The spring and autumnal equinox, as well as summer and winter solstice, occur at precise times determined by the Earth's orbit around the sun.
