Tonight, we will witness an extra-special supermoon in Southwest Florida, an event that's been nearly 70 years in the making.
According to NASA, the moon will be 14% brighter and 30% bigger than normal. 
The supermoon occurs when the moon becomes full on the same day as when the moon's orbit is closest to Earth.
The best time to observe the supermoon will be just before sunrise, at 6:22am EST, with a full moon peak expected 2 and a half hours later.
It's an event you don't want to miss! The next time the moon will be this large and this close will be November 24, 2034.
Weather conditions are favorable for viewing the supermoon tonight, with skies expected to be partly cloudy. We may note a few more clouds building overhead by sunrise which could inhibit ideal viewing in some parts of Southwest Florida. Temperatures will fall to the low to mid 60s by Monday morning.
