NEW YORK (WABC) -- If the moon looked bigger, brighter, and a little bit eerier than usual tonight, there is a reason.
The first so-called 'Supermoon' of the year, shined brightly over the Manhattan skyline.
Sunday's Supermoon is 14,000 miles closer to Earth than a typical full moon. It is also fourteen percent brighter.
The reddish hue is actually caused by all of the moisture in the air and some of the lingering haze from the Canadian wildfires.
