Supermoon illuminates the night sky
The biggest and brightest moon in almost 70 years fill the night sky over north Northumberland on Monday night.
Keen photographers were out to capture the moment, including Denys Cooper who took this superb picture of the moon looking east over Berwick Pier.
The supermoon appeared 30% brighter and 14% bigger than normal. They occur when the Earth, sun and moon align to the moon’s orbit of Earth, with the moon on the opposite side of the Earth to the sun.
It was the biggest since January 1948 and astronomers say we won’t be treated to such a spectacular moon again until November 2034.
