Viewers early Sunday morning could look up in the sky for a super sight: the biggest and brightest full moon of the year.
The so-called supermoon appeared14 percent larger than normal early Sunday as our celestial neighbor swung closer to Earth. Some may think the supermoon looks more dazzling, but it's actually an optical illusion. The moon looms larger on the horizon next to trees and buildings.
The moon came within 222,000 miles of Earth and turned full around 7:30 a.m. EDT, making it the best time to view.
