lights up the skies over Burnham-On-Sea
night skies over Burnham-On-Sea were illuminated with a rare 'supermoon'
astronomical event is occurring this week, with the full moon at
its closest point to Earth for several decades.
moon orbits our planet in an oval shape so sometimes it comes closer
to us than at other times, making it appear 30 per cent brighter
and 14 per cent bigger.
were the scenes in Burnham-On-Sea's Marine Cove gardens last night,
where the pond's cherub fountain was illuminated by moonlight through
a light mist.
supermoon was at its biggest and brightest for 70 years on Monday.
The astronomical event will not be as clear again until November
