These striking photographs captured by readers show the January full moon – commonly known as the ‘wolf moon’ in all its lunar glory.
The first full moon of the year, named after howling wolves, was used to track the changing seasons in ancient times.
Last night, it coincided with a penumbral lunar eclipse over Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa.
Kevin Jay captured a stunning picture of the wolf moon over Felixstowe Docks.
