Get ready for the Super Moon tonight.

The full moon in tonight’s sky will be 14% bigger and will be brighter than other nights, according to NASA. The moon will appear larger due to the elipitcal path of its orbit, which brings it 50,000 kilometers closer to Earth than usual, NASA states.

There will also be Super Moons on Aug. 10 and Sept. 9.
