MIAMI – It took almost a full year, but the one and only super moon of 2017 will appear in the skies on Sunday night.

A super moon is actually a normal full moon that occurs when the celestial object that is definitely not made of cheese is closet to the Earth.

According to USA Today, the super moon appears up to 30 percent brighter than a normal full moon at its farthest point from Earth.

The Local 10 Weather Authority says skies over South Florida should be plenty clear to view this year's super moon appearance.
