Happy first day of Spring!

Spring weather has been around for a few days now, and boy what a difference it has made!

Snow continues to melt, and we can even see some areas of ground now.

The Spring Equinox will officially occur at 3:58 MDT.

The March full moon “Worm Moon” will also occur tonight- peaking at 7:43 PM.

Sunset is at 7:38 PM, so plenty of time to get out and see the peak occur!

This is the first time a full moon and the Spring Equinox have occurred in the same day since 2000.

The Worm Moon is also the final supermoon of the year!

We had three back-to-back supermoons occur in January, February, and now March.

Overall, a very pleasant forecast for such an eventful day!
