last supermoon of the year rises tonight

The Sturgeon Moon, August's beautiful full moon, will shine brightly tonight (Aug. 11)

It will happen when the moon is 90% of the way to Earth, calling it a "supermoon," according to NASA.

This year has already had three supermoons: in May, June, and July, with August's supermoon serving as the year's final supermoon.

Supermoon streaks like the one we've seen this year are not unusual.

Unfortunately for Perseid meteor shower fans, the full moon will coincide with the height of the shower.

However, due to the full moon, watchers in North America should expect to see between 50 and 60 meteors each hour.

However, there is still much to watch out for tonight, as some Perseid meteor showers may be seen.
