You'll probably hear a lot about a 'supermoon' over the next few months. This is not a term that astronomers use, but here are some facts about what will actually happen.
September's full moon will cap a trio of back-to-back supermoons for the Northern Hemisphere summer.
Astronomers call the event a perigee full moon, as perigee means near Earth.
On July 12, the moon may have seemed slightly brighter to the casual observer. This is how the 'supermoon' appeared around the globe.
You might want to step outside tomorrow night (July 12), when a bulging supermoon will rise in the evening sky.
