A super moon lit up the skies of Norfolk last night and our readers have sent in photos capturing it in all its glory.

Over the weekend and in the early morning of Monday, February 10 the moon was much bigger and brighter than normal.

It was the first super moon of 2020 and gets it's name from Native American tribes who linked the event with the snow season.

It can also be known as a hunger moon or, more appropriately with the recent events of storm Ciara, a storm moon.
