This week’s harvest moon will be the last supermoon of the year


People watch a supermoon rise above Lisbon, Portugal, on Aug. 30.

A supermoon occurs when the moon is closest to Earth along its elliptical orbit, which means it can appear larger and brighter to viewers. The last one of the year will be visible Thursday and Friday.
