ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - You'll want to keep your eye to the sky this weekend as the so-called ‘Super Moon' is expected to peak on Sunday evening.
It will be the largest moon of the year.
The super moon is also called the Perigee Moon and occurs when the full moon lines up with the earth and sun at a specific point in its orbit.
Since it's a lot closer at this time it'll look about fourteen percent bigger and thirty percent brighter.
Sunday morning moon set will occur at 6:11 a.m. and the moon will rise again at 8:43 p.m. Sunday evening.
