FROM TODAY'S PRINT EDITIONS:
The moon is full tonight. It’s the third full moon since the winter solstice, making it the Lenten Moon, the Sap, Crow or Worm Moon. Take your pick; each one evokes something about the season we’re in.
If skies are clear, look for the moon to rise over Baltimore at 7:37 p.m. This moon is also special because it stands at perigee at 3 p.m. today. It’s the full moon’s closest approach to Earth this year, and for the past 18 years. So it may look a tad bigger and brighter. Tides may also run a bit higher.
