Full Moon Silhouettes

Explanation: Have you ever watched the Moon rise? The slow rise of a nearly full moon over a clear horizon can be an impressive sight. One impressive moonrise was imaged in early 2013 over Mount Victoria Lookout in Wellington, New Zealand. With detailed planning, an industrious astrophotographer placed a camera about two kilometers away and pointed it across the lookout to where the Moon would surely soon be making its nightly debut. The featured single shot sequence is unedited and shown in real time — it is not a time lapse. People on Mount Victoria Lookout can be seen in silhouette themselves admiring the dawn of Earth’s largest satellite. Seeing a moonrise yourself is not difficult: it happens every day, although only half the time at night. Each day the Moon rises about fifty minutes later than the previous day, with a full moon always rising at sunset. This Saturday, October 16, is International Observe the Moon Night, where you observe a first-quarter Moon along with other lunar enthusiasts.

说明: 你看过月出吗? 看着接近满相的月亮,缓缓从鲜明的地平线升起,会是很令人难忘的体验。上面这部让人难忘的影片,是在2013年初摄于纽西兰惠灵顿市维多利亚的瞭望台。在精心的规划下,不辞劳苦的天文摄影者,把相机放在离瞭望台两公里远的位置,并将镜头对准瞭望台和月亮必然会升起的方向。上面这部单机主题影片,未经处理且以真实速度播放。而位在维多利亚山瞭望台上观赏月亮东升的人们,则以剪影之姿现身。看到月出并非难事,每天都会发生,不过只有一半的时候是在夜晚。月出每天约会推迟50分钟,而满月一定是在日落时东升。今年的10月16日星期六那晚,是国际观月之夜,你可以和世界各地的月亮崇爱者一起观测上弦月。
