Best night for hunter's supermoon Sunday night

CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII-NEWS) - Sunday night is the best time for hunter's supermoon this year.

According to NASA, viewing will be at its best on Sunday, when the moon is both full and "at its closest point to our planet as it orbits Earth.

Some people from the Coastal Bend sent us pictures to our newsroom.

The glow from this year's hunter's moon will get an extra boost because it's also a supermoon, a phenomenon that occurs when the moon's orbit comes closer to Earth. The combination means those reds and oranges will beam even brighter.

This year's hunter's supermoon will orbit Earth at its closest point — known as perigee — Sunday night, according to EarthSky.
