The “Supermoon” will light up the sky all over the world tonight and it should be visible from here in North Carolina, weather permitting.
A supermoon happens when a full moon or new moon comes within 224,834 miles of the Earth, according to earthsky.org.
The supermoon on Saturday will be during a full moon. Full moons occur near perigee approximately every 13 months, so full moons like this upcoming one are not that uncommon, according to NASA.
There are a total of six supermoons this year. If you miss the one tonight, there’s another on Sept. 28 and one on Oct. 27.
