Watch A Huge Golden Moon Rise In Real Time (Video)

Full Moon Silhouettes from Mark Gee on Vimeo.

Sure I've seen the moon when it's big and orange and hanging low on the horizon. But I've never seen anything like this.

Mark Gee, the video's creator, writes on the Vimeo page, "Full Moon Silhouettes is a real time video of the moon rising over the Mount Victoria Lookout in Wellington, New Zealand...It's something that I've been wanting to photograph for a long time now, and a lot of planning and failed attempts had taken place. Finally, during moon rise on the 28th January 2013, everything fell into place and I got my footage. The video is as it came off the memory card and there has been no manipulation whatsoever. Technically it was quite a challenge to get the final result."
