Mooning

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day is a short video (unedited, real time) of moonrise. Sit back and enjoy.

That is really gorgeous. Love the music chosen to go with it. Thanks for sharing.

The cynical side of me has a hard time believing that it isn't time lapse. Would the moon whip across the sky in a matter of hours if it was rising at that rate? I am wondering too if there isn't some natural or staged forced perspective going on here...does the moon ever really look *that* close to Earth?

So there, I just showed both my scientific ignorance and my photography ignorance all in one comment. :)
