Can you spot the ‘super moon’?

This Saturday, you may notice the moon appears much larger and brighter than usual. According to NASA, this May’s full moon is called a "super moon,” and it will look about 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full moons this year.

 

This “super moon” is moving on a path closest to the Earth, otherwise known as Perigee.

 

Will you be turning your head skyward? We want to see your photos of this hard-to-miss astronomical event. The best shots will be showcased on CNN.com.
