Close Encounter Of The Supermoon
encounters of the '
' kind: Amazing
of our lunar neighbour... the nearest it's been in 20 years
It looks like an intergalactic pilot is trying to cut the moon in half. In fact, this memorable image was created by a very Earthly vapour trail from a plane.
The shot is one of many extraordinary pictures of our nearest neighbour taken across the world this weekend, including a magical one below at Glastonbury Tor,
As well as being full, the moon is currently relatively close to the Earth.
On Saturday it was 220,625
away, making it seem brighter and yellower and creating the eye-catching 'super moon' effect.
It was the first time since January 19, 1992, that the moon has been so close to the Earth. At its furthest, it can be 250,000 miles away.
An aircraft flies past the moon over Somerset on Saturday night as it is at its
point to the earth for almost two decades. It appears the moon is being sliced in half.
