Full moon (through glass) by Elizabeth Oakley

THESE breathtaking images reveal the pink supermoon as it lit up the Gloucestershire night skies this week.

Taken by Gloucestershire Camera Club members, the pictures show the moon on Monday night and in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

This month’s supermoon appeared bigger and brighter in the night’s sky due to its closeness to Earth.

It passed within just 360,000km of Earth, making it the first supermoon of 2021.

But although April’s full moon is known as the pink supermoon, it is not so named because of its colour.

Around the world, people of many cultures named the full moons throughout the course of the year as a way to keeping track of time.

April’s full moon is nicknamed after pink flowers which bloom at this time of the year.

The pink moon rose on Monday night and was at its fullest in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

But if you missed it, don’t worry, the pink moon was the first of two supermoons in 2021, with the next one set to appear on May 26.

Although April's full moon is called pink, it isn't actually that colour and gets its name from phlox flowers that bloom in spring time.

But the supermoon status is well earned, due to how large the moon appears in the sky as it enters its closest proximity to Earth in its orbit. During this time, it appears around 14% bigger and 30% brighter.

Supermoons usually occur three to four times a year, with the next expected next month. In the meantime, take a look through a selection of stunning pictures from around the world of last night's phenomenon.
