A stunning picture of the Milky Way has been captured over one of Suffolk's most popular beaches. 

Jon Allard, who is a keen astronomical photographer, captured the phenomenon above Aldeburgh beach on Tuesday. 

Mr Allard has taken a number of pictures of the Milky Way across Suffolk over the last couple of years

The best time of year to see the Milky Way is between March and May. It can also be seen in the summer months but it is not as common. 

Suffolk has some great places to go stargazing thanks to the clear skies and seemingly never-ending views.

As well as Aldeburgh, other popular locations include Westleton Common, Covehithe and Dunwich.
