Photographers and stargazers have been treated to a spectacle as a super blue blood moon hung over the night sky on Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

Some had clear views, while others captured the moment through the break in the clouds.

Aroha Wakefield in Rotorua was able to catch the moon unobstructed as it rose over the horizon.
