It’s comforting to look up at the night sky. The bright stars seem like old familiar friends…the pockmarked Moon is like a steady and unchanging ally. From our perspective on Earth, the universe seems stable and eternal Of course, this isn’t how things really are. In reality, our night sky is in a constant state of flux
Here is an amazing look at our changing view of the cosmos. This is a stunning, real time video of the Moon as it rises over the Mount Victoria Lookout in Wellington, New Zealand. People had gathered up there this night to get the best view possible, and Mark Gee captured the video from 2.1km away on the other side of the city.
