The full Harvest Moon will light up the sky tonight and also cap off a summer of back-to-back-to-back “supermoons” for the Northern Hemisphere, according to NASA.

Space.com reports that the moon will reach its full phase at 9:38 p.m. EDT.

The scientific term for the phenomenon is “perigee moon.” The illusion occurs when the Moon is near the horizon.

Supermoons also occurred this summer on July 12 and Aug. 10.
