Philip Lucas of Elton Road, Banbury, shot this amazing photo of Sunday’s Supermoon.

Supermoons, or perigee moons which is the scientific term, occur when the moon is at its closest point to the earth during its yearly orbit. Due to the proximity of the moon to the earth it becomes bigger and brighter than usual.

Mr Lucas was aware that there was supposed to be a full moon on Sunday night. He said: “I wanted to make sure the weather was good, it had been stormy but luckily the cloud cleared and gave me enough time for me to take a few pictures.” Experts suggest we could see another supermoon on September 9 so be sure to have your cameras ready.
