Another supermoon rises 

this month

 July's full moon will 

once again be a supermoon, reaching its perigee or closest point to our planet on July 13.

The moon will be

relatively close to Earth in its slightly elliptical orbit, making it appear just slightly bigger and brighter than usual

 New York City observers will see

the almost-full moon set at about 4:55 a.m. local time on July 13, the slightly waning moon will rise again at 9:00 p.m

It's a great time to

 focus your skywatching efforts on using your eyes, binoculars or a telescope to examine lunar features.

Binoculars or a

 telescope show off details in craters, mountains, ridges and other huge features.

The moon is a great 

target to practice observing as it is a large object to track, and it reflects a lot of light for budding photographers

Where will NASA set up 

its moon base?
