(CNN) - Another Supermoon is expected to put on a show in the sky this weekend.

Stargazers who missed the July 12 phenomenon will have another chance to see it. A Supermoon occurs at the point in the moon's orbit when it is closest to Earth.

The last two full moons, coming Saturday and again Sept. 10, will both be of the "super" variety.
