Nothing interesting on television tonight? Perhaps it would be more entertaining to turn off the tv and step out your back door for a show brought to you by Mother Nature.

Tonight the moon will be bigger and closer to earth than usual, according to scientists at NASA. The “Supermoon” will be 30 percent brighter than normal and 14 percent closer to earth, making for a picturesque sight in the skies.

The Supermoon has been visible for the past few nights, but it cumulates tonight, experts say, and will appear in conjunction with the annual Perseid meteor shower that occurs between Aug. 11-13.

A Supermoon occurs when the moon is full and comes as close to the earth as its rotation allows.
