If you’ve turned your gaze skyward after sunset over the past few nights, you’ve probably noticed the moon looking a bit bigger than usual.

In fact, this has been the biggest and brightest supermoon in almost 69 years. The last time the moon has appeared this large was in 1948.

The moon reached its peak size on Monday Nov. 14 at 6:22 a.m. If you missed that sight, NASA scientists say you’ll have another chance tonight.

The New York Times reports that tonight the moon will appear 7 percent bigger and cast 15 percent brighter than usual. Scientists say to look for the moon on the horizon at 5:14 p.m. Monday to see a possibly more colorful moon.

The next supermoon of this size will be 18 years from now.
