BOISE -- You'll want to check out the skies Saturday night, as you could get a chance to view a "super Moon."

According to NASA, the "super Moon,” could appear to be as much as 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than other full Moons of 2012. That's because the Moon will be at its closest point to Earth at the time it turns full. 

So when can you see it? NASA says the best time to view the super Moon is when it's on the horizon, which will be just after 9:30 p.m. MST. 

If you catch a snap of the super Moon, be sure to send it to us on KTVB.COM First Person.
