Rare super Blue Moon dazzles stargazers in Bramley

The first “blue super moon” since 2009 provided a spectacular sight in the skies over West Leeds on Wednesday night.

The Moon appeared bigger and brighter than usual because it’s near the closest point in its orbit around Earth – making it a supermoon. And it was also a blue moon, so-called because there are 13 full Moons in this yearly cycle rather than 12.

Photographer Susan Tellum was on hand to capture the rare phenomenon above the skies in Bramley – sadly, there won’t be another blue supermoon until 2037.
