Eyes on the skies: Sunday brings 2017's sole Supermoon

Posted: Updated:
WOODBURY -

Don't forget to look up tonight -- the first and only Supermoon of 2017 will be visible.

The moon will appear to be bigger and brighter Sunday night as its orbit takes it closest to Earth.

News 12 meteorologists say conditions tonight will be partly cloudy and cold with lows in the 30s (with colder lows in the upper-20s around the Pine Barrens). As the clouds clear, we can expect decent viewing conditions for the Supermoon.

News 12 wants to see your Supermoon shots. Post your pics on Twitter using the hashtag #LISupermoon and you could see them on our morning show Monday!
