Super full moon visible this weekend

Posted:

UNDATED (WKOW) -- Look up in the sky this weekend, you could see a very rare sight.

Saturday's full moon will be a super perigee moon -- the biggest in almost 20 years. NASA says the moon will appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual.

The rare celestial event happens when the moon reaches the closest possible point of its orbit around the earth, about 212,000 miles away.

If you miss it, the next time you'll be able to see it is 2029.
