Photographers in the Three Towns were howling at the moon last night as they managed to catch a glimpse of the majestic Flower Supermoon shining overhead.

May 26 provided a treat for both camera enthusiasts and keen sky watchers as two rare lunar events coincided with May's full moon - the Flower Supermoon and the Blood Moon.

Both were expected to be big and bright and they did not disappoint, with Sharon Dalgouette catching the full-bodied moon in its all glory, as seen below.

The Flower Supermoon was also captured in extraordinary detail by Alan Pettigrew, whose image, although similar to the one above, managed to expose its golden/orange hue from a slightly farther away angle.

Lesley Campbell also spotted the rare lunar sceptacle from Saltcoats and Stevenston beach. The moon reflected beautifully in the water below and left a trail of light over the sea.

And finally, the lunar eclipse moon was documented expertedly by Richard Dockray. The rose pink/yellow moon creates a serene contrast with the blue tones of the sea and sky in this image and shows why Three Towns residents were so eager to see this lunar event in action.
