Moonrise in New Zealand 4 minutes

This is not a time lapse. This moonrise, recorded and presented here in real time, was shot in Wellington, New Zealand and it is positively spellbinding. Seriously. Just watch.

The moon illusion is working overtime here, thanks to some clever camera placement by astrophotographer Mark Gee, who set up shop a full two kilometers away from Mount Victoria Lookout in anticipation of the Moon's appearance over t he horizon.

Writes Gee of the video, which he calls, appropriately, "Full Moon Silhouettes" .

Full Moon Silhouettes is a real time video of the moon rising over the Mount Victoria Lookout in Wellington, New Zealand. People had gathered up there this night to get the best view possible of the moon rising. I captured the video from 2.1km away on the other side of the city. 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.

Oh, to be one of the stargazers silhouetted against this brilliantly limned orb, our planet's largest satellite. You'll want to watch this one in Full screen.

I’m a huge Star Trek: The Next Generation fan. As a preteen, I would count the minutes until the next episode, I would prepare my spot in front of the TV every day before 7 pm, just to watch the rerun episodes. I spent an entire summer speculating about what would happen in the 2nd part of Time’s Arrow (when they went back in time to 19th Century San Francisco).

I recorded episodes with my VCR and watched them again and again, hitting yard sales for all the VHS tapes I could get my hands on so that I could replace whatever might be on them with the adventures of the Enterprise D. I know the lines of many of the episodes by heart. I still think it’s the best TV show that was ever made.

And I never noticed, not once, that the entire time, Riker was stepping over chair backs like some kind of maniac and making it look perfectly natural:
