Moonrise

Full Moon Silhouettes from Mark Gee on Vimeo.

This is a remarkable video of moonrise in New Zealand, shot from over 2 km away. You can get more details (in English) of how it was done at http://io9.com/5980370/a-moonrise-unlike-any-youve-ever-seen.

I thought the moon looked odd somehow. It was only when it rose higher that I understood. ¬†Of course, it’s upside down (compared to Europe).
