Okanagan and Kamloops locals love the moon so much they snap photos at every supermoon chance they get.

The latest supermoon made its first appearance last night, March 8, and residents are already preparing their cameras for another bright event tonight.

Called the Full Worm Moon, according to the Farmer’s Almanac, the moon reached its peak at 10:48 a.m. today, March 9.

But that doesn’t mean it’s too late to snap a photo.

This full moon is the first of three supermoons in 2020 — the other two occurring in April and May.

“Supermoon is the popular nickname given to a full Moon that coincides with perigee, which is the point in the Moon’s orbit of Earth where it’s closest to our planet,” according to the Farmer’s Almanac.

Skies will be clear and bright tonight for the Thomson Okanagan region, with clouds rolling in around 12 a.m. in Kamloops. Clouds are expected to roll into the Okanagan near the morning hours, according to Environment Canada.
