Late afternoon on Sunday saw people flocking to The Leas, Folkestone to watch a spectacular sunset accompanied by a crescent Moon and planet Venus appearing nearby.

The darkening skies caused the few clouds to turn bright pink through to deep reds, whilst the Romney Marsh coast turned from yellows to deep ochre and reds.

The crescent Moon appeared above and to the left of the sunset whilst planet Venus made a bright point just below right on it to complement the view.

Let's all hope that such red skies at night, in this context, bode well for everyone throughout the whole of 2020.
