SINGAPORE - Friday night's (Aug 12) full moon will be almost as bright as the supermoon - the last of the year - that appeared in Singapore skies on Thursday.

The moon will rise on Friday at about 7.40pm and set at about 8am the next day, said Science Centre Singapore.

Thursday's supermoon looked brighter and a tad larger than the usual full moon in August, which is known in Native American culture as the Sturgeon Moon.

Stargazers may also be able to spot Saturn close to the moon if they look up at the night sky on Friday.
