The moon will be putting on a rare show Saturday night. A so-called "supermoon" will be caused by Luna orbiting about 15-thousand miles closer than average to Earth. It's also a full moon. The rare combination that will only be seen this one time all year will cause the moon to seem about 14-percent larger than normal and also much brighter. The peak viewing time is at 10:35 p.m.

The supermoon may cause some problems seeing another sky show underway at the same time. It's the annual meteor shower created by the leftovers of Halley's Comet. Astronomers recommend finding a very dark location well away from artificial lighting for best viewing.
