After two days of mostly cloudy skies, you may have noticed something incredibly bright in the clearing skies over Ocean County tonight. And it'll get even more impressive in a little while as a rare cosmic event takes place tonight.

First, the reason that moon is so bright and big right now is that we have what's known as a "supermoon" - the Moon is full, and at its closest orbit of the Earth.

But that's not the only cool thing going on tonight just a little while ago, the stages of a total lunar eclipse have begun. Over the next hour and a half or so, you'll notice the moon being in shadow little by little.

So take a step outside and look up! The clouds are breaking up in much of Ocean County, and we won't have another supermoon eclipse until 2033!
