If you step outside Friday or Saturday night, and peek through any clouds drifting by, you'll be treated to something special:  A Full Moon!  Better yet, A SUPERMOON!

My goodness, what is that?  A supermoon is much bigger and brighter than most other full moons and will be the first of three such moons over the next three months. The next supermoons will occur on Aug. 10 and Sept. 9, according to NASA.

A supermoon is different from a regular full moon in that a supermoon happens when part of its orbit is closest to the Earth. At this point, known as "perigee," the moon is about 30,000 miles (50,000 kilometers) closer to the planet than at its farthest point, or "apogee."

So enjoy the full moons this month, next month, and in September!  For my complete long range forecast, please click here.. http://www.kveo.com/weather
