Stargazers who missed the July 12 supermoon will have another chance to see the bright lunar phenomenon from all around the world tonight, Sunday, August 10, when it will be 12% bigger and 30% brighter than normal.

The supermoon occurs when the moon becomes full on the same days as its perigee, which is the point in the moon’s orbit when it is closest to Earth.
