Sunday evening promising for skywatchers

Sunday evening brings two events for skywatchers - the so-called supermoon and the Perseid meteor shower, two days before the meteor shower reaches its peak. The supermoon is a non-astronomical term for when the moon's orbit brings it closer to Earth, appearing 14 percent larger than usual and 30 percent brighter than other full moons, according to sources. In the Czech Republic, the dramatic full moon will be observable best from roughly 8 PM and later into the night.
