Pink skies and a strawberry moon: beautiful images of a rare summer solstice

If you were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the sky last night, you will have witnessed a rare occurrence: the moment a full strawberry moon coincided with summer solstice.

This hasn't happened since 1948, when the strawberry moon (the name given to the full moon in June, as it marks the start of strawberry season) rose on the same day as summer solstice, the longest day of the year which officially marks the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere.

Unfortunately, the two won't happen in tandem again for another 46 years, until 21 June 2062. But if you missed out, fear not: we have compiled our favourite images of the once-in-a-lifetime event from around the world, for your viewing pleasure.

Come see all the beautiful pink skies and red-tinted moon and celebrate the (official) start of summer.
