Remember to stop and look at the sky tonight to witness one of the biggest and fullest moons of the year -- known as a "supermoon."

A supermoon occurs when a full moon or new moon is closest to Earth and comes within 224,834 miles of us, which will happen six times this year, according to earthsky.org.

Tonight's supermoon will be during a full moon.

But if you miss tonight's supermoon, don't worry. The next one is just one month away, on Sept. 28.
