The July Buck Supermoon will glow in an online broadcast from Rome, and you can watch it for free.
Weather permitting, the Virtual Telescope Project will start its livestream Wednesday (July 13) at 5:00 p.m. EDT (2100 GMT), allowing you to watch the third of four supermoons in a row. You can watch at the project's website or here at Space.com in the window above.
"We will admire our satellite rising above the skyline of Rome, the Eternal City, hanging above its legendary monuments," project founder Gianluca Masi wrote in a statement.

The Buck Moon will be the closest supermoon of 2022. In general, a supermoon is a full moon that is near its closest approach to Earth in its orbit, known as the perigee. (The moon will appear a little bigger and brighter in the sky, although it's tough to spot the difference with the naked eye.)
While definitions of "supermoon" vary, NASA eclipse watcher Fred Espenak counts July's full moon as the third of four supermoons in a row. In New York City, you can catch the almost-full set around 4:55 a.m. local time July 13, according to timeanddate.com, and the slightly waning moon will rise again at 9 p.m.
Viewers seeking the full moon in person will enjoy a slightly better view of its craters and mountains with binoculars or a telescope. It's a good time to look at the supermoon, as the full moon tends to wash out fainter targets in the sky, like galaxies or nebulas.
