This is not a time lapse. This moonrise, recorded just two days ago 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 the horizon. Writes Gee of the video, which he calls, appropriately, "Full Moon Silhouettes":
