A photographer has captured this breathtaking image of last week's Super Moon from Cheam Park.

Simon Van-Orden took the picture looking out over Sutton at exactly 5.07pm on Wednesday (January 31).

Skygazers who looked up on Wednesday night would have seen the "unusual" celestial event of a blue moon for the first time since July 2015.

Blue moons are defined as the second full moon in a calendar month - and this one was also be a supermoon, meaning the Earth's natural satellite appeared about 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter in the sky as it reaches its closest point to Earth.
