It looks like we may get a great glimpse of the first full moon of the month tonight, Aug. 1. The super moon will be closer than usual, just 222,159 miles away.

According to Wikipedia:

A supermoon is a full moon or a new moon that nearly coincides with perigee—the closest that the Moon comes to the Earth in its elliptic orbit—resulting in a slightly larger-than-usual apparent size of the Moon as viewed from Earth.
