The largest full moon of 2014 rises tonight (Aug. 10), and even if you don't have a clear view of the sky, you can still catch the cosmic action live online.

August's full moon, a so-called "supermoon," rises when the natural satellite is at perigee — the closest point to Earth in its orbit. It is the second of three supermoons this summer, according to NASA

The online Slooh Community Observatory will offer a free live broadcast of the supermoon full moon tonight 7:30 p.m. EDT (2330 GMT). You can also watch the August supermoon webcast live on on Space.com, courtesy of Slooh.

Weird thing though, I had a dream about watching the supermoon rise a couple of nights ago before I knew nothing of this. Maybe I browsed through the headlines and picked it up subconsciously. Probably. 13.gif

Too bad these things are notoriously difficult to capture on a regular crap cam. No way to capture the magnificence. Best to watch it anyway.
