Wellingtonians and Aucklanders may catch a glimpse of it if cloud permits.On Sunday night, people in eastern areas of both islands in New Zealand should have a reasonable chance of seeing the Moon. High cloud was likely in the west.Also around 3am the Moon would be close to straight up, reducing the chance of cloud getting in the way.
