Stomper Kannan was at Woodlands yesterday evening (Mar 12) when he spotted a full moon.  

Said the Stomper:

"I saw the moon last night and it looks bigger and brighter than before.

"It is said to be the last full moon during the winter season before the spring equinox period.

"The Native American name for this full moon, the Worm Moon, alludes to the earthworms that emerge from the softening ground at this time of the year."
