A treat awaits stargazers and moon admirers this August as not one but two supermoons are set to grace the night sky.
Tonight (August 1), the enchanting sight of the Sturgeon Moon will illuminate various parts of the world, including the United States and Saudi Arabia.
According to USAToday, the full supermoon will be positioned just under 226,000 miles (363,300 kilometers) away from Earth, promising an extra bright and big appearance.
Renowned Pakistani space scientist, Dr. Jawed Iqbal, anticipates that the moon will be 14% larger and an astonishing 30% brighter than usual tonight.
The peak illumination of the moon is expected at 2:32 pm ETD on Tuesday, as shared by the Old Farmer’s Almanac.
As the evening approaches, set your sights to the southeast to behold the rising beauty of the Sturgeon Moon, a rare sight that promises to leave observers spellbound.
