  4. In pictures: Pink Moon lights up skies over Yorkshire

    Stargazers have enjoyed the emergence of what is known as a pink moon in the night skies above Yorkshire.

    Despite its name, there is not any noticeable colour difference to the full moon, which reached its peak in the UK at 03:55 this morning.

    These photos were taken by BBC Weather Watchers in Beverley, Goole, Ampleforth and Ryhill.
