The Strawberry Moon has been shining brightly in the skies over Dorset.

Members of the Echo’s Camera Club captured the spectacular sight on camera.

It was first seen on Friday night.

The Strawberry Moon coincides with summer solstice once every 20 years when the moon is situated on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun - which fully illuminates its round shape.

The lunar event got its name from Native American tribes, who used the moon to help them indicate when fruit would be ripened.

According to the Royal Greenwich Observatory in London, the Strawberry Moon will last for up to three to four days.
