Supermoon, Part I [July 12]

Great explanation via
The first of this year's three supermoons (so called because they are 30% brighter due to a closer orbit) will occur tonight at moonrise. For our area, moonrise is at 8:57pm tonight. Let's hope the clouds part for a good show.

The next two are due in the coming months. On August 10, moonrise will be at 8:20pm and on September 8,  at 7:35pm.
