August Supermoon

Tonight is the beginning of three consecutive "supermooons." For those that don't remember, a supermoon is a full moon when the moon is near its closest point to the earth, making the moon appear slightly larger and brighter than average.

Tonight's moon is also called the Sturgeon Moon, being the last full moon of the summer. On September 27th we'll the first full moon of fall which is also called the Harvest Moon, and it will also be a lunar eclipse.
