It is indeed a Beautiful Sunday, so to put yourself in a quiet mental space for today, take a moment to appreciate this incredible moonrise over the Mount Victoria Lookout in Wellington, New Zealand.

Photographer, Mark Gee took this in a single, uncut shot filmed in real time. Watch it full-screen, sound on for full effect.



For the details on how Gee got this shot, see his write-up.

For some of the science behind the moonrise and why it appears to be going so fast, see astronomer Phil Plait’s explanation.
