The Sky Tonight Update: Full Moon, Supermoon, Blue Moon

Full Moon Supermoon Blue Moon

The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be fully illuminated. This phase occurs at 01:37 UTC ()7:37 pm Central Time). This is also the third of four supermoons for 2023. The Moon will be near its closest approach to the Earth and may look slightly larger and brighter than usual. Since this is the second full moon in the same month, it is sometimes referred to as a blue moon.
