Stargazers across Scotland captured some stunning images of a pink supermoon overnight.

Despite its name, there is not any noticeable colour difference to the full moon.

It refers to a northern Native American reference to an early-blooming wildflower and is first seen across North America as spring begins.

The lunar light show, which peaked at 03:55, was pictured by professionals and amateurs with spectacular results.
