Moonrise Video

Kick back, dim the lights, and enjoy this absolutely gorgeous one-shot video of a moonrise in realtime. It was captured two nights ago over Mount Victoria Lookout in Wellington, New Zealand. From APOD:

“With detailed planning, an industrious astrophotographer placed a camera about two kilometers away and pointed it across the lookout to where the Moon would surely soon be making its nightly debut. The above single shot sequence is unedited and shown in real time — it is not a time lapse. People on Mount Victoria Lookout can be seen in silhouette themselves admiring the dawn of Earth’s largest satellite.”

Gorgeous. Watch below.
