A Sight to See: The Biggest, Brightest Moon of the Year will arrive tonight

Here's something to look forward to this evening: The biggest, brightest supermoon of 2020 will be appearing in the night sky Tuesday.

"Watch for the biggest full moon of the year to shine all night long as it beams in the east after sunset April 7, climbs highest up for the night around midnight, and sets in the west around sunrise April 8," EarthSky's Bruce McClure said.

The full moon occurs precisely at 10:35 p.m. EDT on April 7, according to EarthSky. 

Of the three supermoons this year, April's supermoon will come closest to our planet – and thus appear the largest. April's supermoon is the second of three to take place in in a row, following March's super worm moon and preceding May's super flower moon, due to take place on May 7,Newsweek said
