The moon will appear 16 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual, thanks to its unusually close proximity to earth.

Sky gazers of Michiana are in for a treat this weekend.

The largest and brightest full moon of 2014 will grace the sky Sunday night, Aug. 10, according to National Geographic.

Due to its especially close proximity to earth that evening, the “supermoon” will appear 16 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual, National Geographic reported.

The best time to see the extra-large moon in all its glory is just after sunset as it begins to rise, National Geographic reported.

The skies in Elkhart Sunday night will be partly cloudy with temperatures hovering in the low to mid-60s, according to the National Weather Service.
