A pink moon is on full display tonight in the night sky

A view of the pink moon

A pink moon is on full display in the night sky above the Okanagan.

This user-submitted photo from Steve Elliot was taken through his computer controlled telescope in West Kelowna.

According to NASA, the full moon was at its closest to Earth shortly after 7:30 p.m. Tonight, the moon is at its perigee, which means the moon will be at its closest to Earth in its orbit. It makes the moon look bigger and brighter, but will also look larger for the next few days.

There are many 'supermoons' each year, but tonight's is the largest of the year.
