Clear skies over Lancashire last night provided a great opportunity to see the Harvest Moon.

The Harvest Moon is the name for the full moon that is closest to the Autumn equinox.

It also coincided last night with a penumbral eclipse - when the moon passes through the outer part of the earth’s shadow, creating a noticeable shady corner of the full moon - creating a spooky effect.

Evening Post readers all over Europe got involved and sent us their photos of the beautiful phenomenon.

Mandy McDonald, in Crete, said: “It looked really close and low. But I only had my phone camera.”
