'Superest' Supermoon Full Moon of 2014 Rises Tonight

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.

While both July and September also play host to perigee full moons, this month's supermoon is the bigger and better than the others this year, according to one NASA scientist. [See amazing images of the July 2014 supermoon]

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
