While the summer solstice may be all about the sun, the moon has been making its presence felt this year.
This stunning photo was taken at Stonehenge last night by Tim Daw of All Cannings near Devizes. It shows the nearly full moon viewed through two of the stones. The pink colour is caused by the refraction of the light through the earth's atmosphere.
The full moon should be even more spectacular tonight, the night of the Solstice, provided there's no cloud about.

A teenager was left in a life-threatening condition and two others critically ill after taking what are thought to have been 'legal highs'.
The 15-year-olds were rushed to hospital after they were discovered in Queen Elizabeth Gardens, in Salisbury.
All three boys are now recovering.
These drugs may be so called 'legal highs' but there is no way of knowing what chemicals are in these substances and what the consequences of taking them will be.
We are working closely with the boys' parents and school, and I would strongly encourage parents/guardians to speak to their children about the risks of taking any drugs, legal or otherwise. My officers have commenced an investigation into this incident.
Police are seriously concerned about a 45 year old man who has gone missing from Salisbury.
James Newton, known as Jim, was last seen between 9.30pm and 10pm on Saturday 19 December at his parents' address in Old Sarum.
He was visiting them from Exeter and was believed to have gone to bed, but when they checked in the morning he was not there.
Police say there are serious concerns about his welfare as he has not been taking his medication.

Public Health England's labs are moving from Wiltshire, to Essex, Chancellor George Osborne has confirmed.
The £350m move will force 900 workers to relocate to the new lab facility in Harlow.
The Porton Down laboratories are currently used by Public Health England to analyse disease. The government research centre will now move to a former GlaxoSmithKline site in Essex.
Salisbury MP John Glen has previously argued against the relocation, claiming that many staff didn’t want to move. But following the Chancellor’s announcement, the Wiltshire MP says he welcomed the decision to support a task force for Porton.
Grateful for the commitment of the Chancellor to support a task force for Porton following PHE decision today
The new PHE facilities will create a centre for research, health improvement and protection working on global health threats, such as Ebola.
