(CNN) - The second installment of this summer's season of supermoons is happening tonight.

Stargazers who missed the July 12 supermoon will have another chance to see the bright lunar phenomenon from all around the world.

The full moons of this summer, which fall on July 12, Aug. 10 and Sept. 9, are all supermoons, according to NASA.

The supermoon of August is one of the largest and brightest full moons of the year. The U.S. Naval Observatory says the moon will be 12 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than it was in January 2014.

In the United States, the moon will turn full on Sunday at 2:09 p.m. ET. The moon will continue to look bright and full Sunday evening, leading into Monday early morning.

Days after the supermoon, people can also watch the annual Perseids meteor shower, which peaks on Wednesday. But stargazers might have a hard time spotting the meteor shower. The moon's light will wash out all but the brightest of Perseids' meteors, according to the International Meteor Organization.

Full moons occur near perigee approximately every 13 months, so full moons like this upcoming one are not that uncommon, according to NASA.

It may be difficult to distinguish a true supermoon because of weather conditions and clouds, according to NASA. But August's supermoon is sure to be a worthy lunar sighting.
