Picture slideshow: Supermoon over Portsmouth

2
Have your say

This was the blood-red supermoon pictured over Portsmouth early today.

The effect is created from a lunar eclipse with the moon near to its closest point to the Earth.

During a lunar eclipse, the moon turns a deep rusty red, due to sunlight being scattered by the Earth’s atmosphere.

Pictures are by Andrew Matthews of the Press Association.
