It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, silly, it’s SUPERMOON! The 2013 Supermoon will be happening live in your skies on Sunday, June 23rd at 7AM EDT.

What is a Supermoon? It’s not a crime-fighting sphere of cheese as the name may have you envisioning, but rather it’s our old familiar moon, only much closer to Earth. This year, it will be 12.2% closer, to be precise. At 7:32AM, the moon will become completely full. Technically, the actual “fullness” of the moon only lasts a moment, but it appears full to a casual observer for a couple of days before and after the full moment has passed. Whether you’re armed with high-tech equipment or watching with naked eyes, it’ll be a great time for some moon-gazing!

If you can’t keep your eyes to the skies at that time, you can watch a free webcast of the Supermoon on Space.com later that day, at 9PM EDT.
