A full moon rises in real time over Wellington, New Zealand

Here is a short and sweet video showing the rising (in real time) of a full moon over Wellington, New Zealand. Note how fast this moon rises as photrapher Mark Gee captures the moment, back in January, 2013.

NASA's Astronomy Picture of the day site featured this back in September, 2014 to celebrate the super moon then.

Mark, an astrophotographer, placed a camera about two kilometers away and pointed it across the lookout to where the Moon would make it's appearance. The folks at Mount Victoria Lookout can be seen in the video as their silhouettes appear in the shadows.
