While attention might be on places like Stonehenge for today's summer solstice, a small group of people gathered at Haytor on Dartmoor for the spectacular sight.

It's got to be one of the best places in the country to see in the longest day of the year.

Stunning picture of the moon at Stonehenge

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.
