Supermoon to start Spring 2019 - Your pictures

The full moon coinciding with this years Spring Equinox was super - literally!

For the final time this year the full moon appeared at the same time as the closest point in it's elliptical orbit around Earth, making last night's moon appear bigger and brighter than usual - sometimes dubbed a 'supermoon'.

After a beautiful day in the south of the region - dry and warm for March with highs of 19ºC recorded in Chester and Nantwich - the clear skies continued overnight, allowing good visibility of the moon as it rose above the horizon Wednesday evening.

Thankfully you were out with your cameras. Here's a selection of images of our March Full Moon.
