On Saturday, May 5, at 11:35 p.m. EDT the moon will be 8,000 miles closer than it’s average distance to the earth and will appear 30% brighter and 14% bigger. This supermoon coincides with the Eta Aquarid meteor shower from Halley’s comet.

The best time to view the moon will be the early evening, just after the moon rises.

The best time to view the meteor shower is late Saturday and early Sunday.

Later in the month, on May 20 there will be an annular eclipse.
