SPECTACULAR!: Moon Rising 01/28/2013

This is stunning beyond words...

Subject: Moon Rising 01/28/2013

...Full Moon Over New Zealand

Astounding! A photographer captured what is one of the most remarkable things I have ever seen filmed.

It is a 3 minute video clip of the full moon rising over Wellington, New
Zealand. It was shot, on a calm summer evening, as people gathered on the
Mt. Victoria Lookout point to watch the moon rise.

This stunning video is one single real-time shot, with no manipulation
whatsoever. The camera was placed on a hillside over 2 kilometers from the
Lookout point, and was shot with the equivalent of a 1300mm lens.

The amount of planning, trial and error, and luck that went into this are
mind blowing. He has been trying to capture this for over a year with many
failed attempts. But On January 28 of this year it seems everything was on his side, and
it all came together in a way even he couldn't have hoped.

You can't say enough good things about this video - from the
magnitude of the visuals, to the intimate stories playing out with the
people, to the sheer humbling nature of seeing the awe-inspiring reality of
this giant rock in the sky that we so often don't stop to appreciate.

Watch this on the BIGGEST screen you have
- don't  waste it on an iphone screen.
