This year, in 2019, the full moon came less than 4 hours after the arrival of the March 20th equinox, making this the closest coincidence of the March equinox and full moon since March 20, 2000. The last time the full moon happened less than one day of the March equinox was 19 years ago, in 2000, and the next time will be 11 years from now, in 2030: During the equinox the sun moves north from the southern hemisphere and appears directly over the equator and day and night are nearly equal in length. The tides are affected as the sun is over the equator, its gravitational strength on the earth is stronger; therefore the tides will be higher. Visit the website below to plan your next fishing trip.
