Check out the 'supermoon' this evening

Look up, way up. Tonight, on Aug. 10, you'll get a chance to view the biggest and brightest moon of the year — the supermoon. The moon will appear to be 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter, as it's closer to the Earth than usual.

Jade Levac and Drew Dewit sent us in this photo of the moon last week. Tonight, people have a chance to glimpse a rare sight — the supermoon. Because the moon is closer to the Earth than usual, it will appear to be 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter. Supplied photo.
Look up, way up. Tonight, on Aug. 10, you'll get a chance to view the biggest and brightest moon of the year — the supermoon.

The moon will appear to be 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter, as it's closer to the Earth than usual.

This year, the supermoon will be accompanied by the Perseid meteor shower, where 100 meteors and hour will be racing through the sky.
