The full moon on August 10th isn’t like any other full moon we’ve seen this year. This is a “Supermoon,” the closest and largest full moon in 2014.
When the moon is full as it makes its closest pass to Earth, it becomes a “Supermoon,” and will be up to 31,000 miles closer to Earth than other full moons this year.
According to NASA, this full moon will be 14-percent closer and 30-percent brighter than other full moons of the year.
The scientific term for the phenomenon is “perigee moon” or the point when the Moon is closest to the Earth in its monthly orbit.
The moon will appear much larger than normal, especially on the horizon
