For any astrology buffs out there or for anyone who likes to gaze at the moon and stars,
there is going to be a super moon tonight.
The moon will appear 30% bigger and 26% brighter as it will be 30,000 miles closer to the earth. It will be easiest to see after sunset looking east/southeast.
This month you will also be able to see 40-50 shooting stars per hour and on August 12th there is going to be a perseid meteor shower ~ look to the northeast horizon after 10pm and the best viewing will be after 1:00 am.
So break out the blankets
grab the camera
and enjoy the show!
