OKLAHOMA CITY -

It has been 33 years since the last 'supermoon' eclipse happened and Oklahomans will get a chance to see the unusual celestial event Sunday night.

The eclipse is set to begin at 8:07 p.m. and will end at 11:27 p.m., News 9 meteorologist Matt Mahler said.

The peak should happen at 9:47 p.m. 

A 'supermoon' lunar eclipse is when a total lunar eclipse coincides with a so-called supermoon -- a full moon that's at the closest point of its orbit to Earth, making it appear bigger and brighter than usual.

The next 'supermoon' eclipse will happen again in 2033. 

The Oklahoma City Astronomy Club will host three public viewings of the celestial event.

They will meet at Windsurfer's Point at Lake Hefner (south from Hefner Road on Old Lakeshore Drive), Washington Elementary School, 600 48th Avenue SE in Norman, and at 709B S. Air Depot in Del City.

NASA will provide a live video feed of the entire eclipse - an option in case clouds obscure your own view.
