New Zealanders woke up to a stunning supermoon this morning.
Known as the Flower Moon, it is the fourth and last supermoon of 2020.
Dunedin-based photographer Angus McNaughton shared a picture of the supermoon online.
He said it was taken from Pukehihi on the Otago Peninsula at around 7:15pm last night.

Stargazers around the world posted their photos of the lunar event, including former American astronaut Buzz Aldrin.
A supermoon occurs when the full moon coincides with the moon's closest approach to Earth in its orbit, making the moon appear brighter and closer than normal.
Last night's supermoon is named after the flowers that are abundant at this time of year in the United States, where it is spring.
It also has special significance for Buddhists, who celebrate a traditional holiday called Vesak at the time of the Flower Moon.
