July's full moon, the buck moon, may illuminate the sky on Wednesday in a particularly big way.

The buck moon will appear full from Tuesday morning to early Friday, according to NASA.

It will reach its peak on Wednesday at 2:48 p.m. ET, but will not be fully visible in North America until moonrise.

For those who catch a glimpse, it might appear larger and brighter than other moons of 2022 because it's a supermoon.

While there isn't a single definition of "supermoon," the term typically  refers to a full moon that can stand out more than others because it is  within 90% of its closest orbit to Earth.

The buck moon is the supermoon that will come closest to Earth this year, according to The Old Farmer's Almanac.

The clearest views of July's full moon in the US will be on the West  Coast, in the Great Plains and the Midwest, CNN meteorologist Jennifer  Gray said.

A cold front will move into the southeastern US on July 12 and 13, potentially causing thunderstorms and rain across the region.

Parts of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado also are expecting thunderstorms early this week, she added.

"There's really no moment that you have to be looking at it to maximize your enjoyment of the full moon.

If it's cloudy and you don't want to be outside, just go one of the next nights."
