It was taken by Antony Newby from a viewpoint in South Leeds yesterday (Saturday) evening.

Photographer Antony said: "I got there one minute before she started to rise and she looked amazing. It's not often you get clear skies when the moon is rising so I made sure I made the most of it."

The April Full Moon, also known as the Pink Moon, is also a Supermoon due to appearing slightly larger than average from being at its closest point in its orbit to Earth.
