It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's SUPERMOON!



Tonight's full moon will be bigger and brighter than any since 1993. 
 It's called a supermoon, and scientists say it will appear 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter at its peak. 
 Due to its elliptical orbit, the moon will be 31,000 miles closer to earth tonight than at it farthest point. 
According to accuweather.com, sunset today will be at 7:17 p.m., and moonrise will be at 7:37 p.m.
The moon will appear largest when it is just above the horizon.
