So I was out taking some moon shots and had the camera set to take 3 exposures about 2 seconds apart, and realized I could actually notice movement of the moon in those few short seconds. So I shot a 5 minute video and then sped it up into the 19 second clip here. Nothing fancy, but it occupied a bit of time for me.
Moon movement sped up

I have watched the video, it's very good, my photos of the moon are all very bad.

So you are exploring new ways to spend the time. I bet it is very peaceful. At least Scar does not howl at the moon. I am impressed by how much movement you can see.

@akp100 It is a video I recorded with a camera. I recorded the moon for 5 minutes. Then I sped the video up.

True JJ is quite good with camera. I always try to be good it too, but I rarely get success.

I am not fooled by this. The tree is clearly walking to the left, which gives the impression of the moon moving.

The moon was beautiful on Friday night. Super low in the sky also. Perfect time for werewolves!
