Get your camera out, 'Supermoon' visible this weekend

Posted: Updated:

This weekend, a "Supermoon," will appear in the sky, according to NASA.

Since the moon is "fullest" early Saturday morning, you can look for the Supermoon both Friday and Saturday nights.

According to NASA, a Supermoon occurs when the moon is somewhat closer to Earth than it typically is, and the effect is most noticeable when it occurs at the same time as a full moon.

We will see three supermoons this summer, on Friday, then on August 10 and September 9. The satellite looks about 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter.

Check out the pictures and send us your images of the supermoon share@wjar.com
