THESE stunning photos show a Strawberry Moon light up the night sky around the UK and the rest of the world this evening.

The last full moon of Spring coincided with a penumbral lunar eclipse this month, turning the moon a spectacular shade of red.

The full moon in June is known as the Strawberry Moon because it traditionally coincides with the start of the wild strawberry harvest season, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac.

The natural eclipse started hit the UK around around 9:06pm and should be visible all night until around 5.17am on Saturday.
