The last supermoon of the year will light up the sky on Thursday
As summer turns to fall and the nights begin to grow longer, the last supermoon of the year will light up Thursday's sky.
Dubbed the "Sturgeon," August's full moon will peak on Friday.
Most publications consider this a supermoon, meaning that the full moon occurs while the moon is closest to its closest point to Earth, also known as perigee, during its current orbit.
Sturgeon's Moon will appear within 90% of perigee, making it a supermoon by most scientific definitions.
