The annual Perseid meteor shower is set to peak on Sunday, Aug. 10 when the supermoon, also known as the perigee full Moon, will be as much as 14% closer and 30% brighter than other full Moons of the year, according to NASA. The first of 2014’s supermoons occurred on July 12.

Supermoon Photos from Around the World:

Supermoon: The August fullmoon is  when the moon is closest to the erath on its elliptical path and appears about 14 percent wider and 30 percent brighter than at its farthest. The moon will be at a distance of 356,896 km from Earth, the closest in this calendar year.

A supermoon lit up the sky as stargazers enjoyed the Perseid meteor shower – one of the year’s most dramatic lunar events. The moon appeared 14% bigger and 30% brighter than normal as it reached the point in its orbit closest to the Earth, known as “perigee”. Here is a selection of the best pictures taken of the moon from around the Earth. Above, the full moon descends behind the Nossa Senhora da Penha Church in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
