HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A supermoon illuminated the night sky across the islands on Sunday.

This was the first and only visible supermoon of 2017.

But don't worry if you missed it because there will be two more supermoons in January.

Supermoons happen when a full moon coincides with its closest proximity to Earth, making it appear bigger and brighter in the night sky.
