Yesterday evening I got a rather excited message on Facebook from Terri, she had taken some very striking photos of the “pink moon”, even going as far as leaning out her bedroom window in her PJ’s to get the perfect photo (which i’m told is something she would never normally do!)
Despite been called a pink moon, the moon doesn’t actually look pink. The pink supermoon name is a northern Native American reference to an early-blooming wildflower and is first seen across North America as spring begins according to the BBC.
We agreed the photo would be perfect for a mini blog post, so below is the photo Terri has taken, you can see the lights of the M62 in the bottom left:
Here is a photo i’d taken from the other side of Huddersfield, the two sets of red lights in the bottom middle are the Emley Moor Mast and the temporary mast beside it:
Needless to pay mobile phone photos can’t really do this justice, however we hope some of you managed to see the moon in person last night too.
