LEDBURY people, as with most of the UK, have been enjoying a rare astronomical spectacle this week, with the second of the so-called "supermoons" to appear this summer.

The full moon on Sunday, August 10, was the closest to the earth it has been for twenty years.

It was 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than usual.

But what is more unusual is the trio of moons over the UK in one year, a spectacle that will not happen again until 2034.

The first supermoon took place on July 12, and the last of the trio will light up the sky on September 9.
