I love it. Watching the moon rise is one of my favorite things. Where I live now, I can't see the horizon, and I really miss it. Thanks, Dandelion.

What a beautiful sight - sometimes we don't take the time to appreciate the simpler things that our planet has to offer.

The most exquisite 3 minutes! Not a sight one sees in NYC! (you're lucky if you get to see the moon at all, been an age since I've seen the stars!

I would suppose the lights of the city wash out the sky above. Is something we should never take for granted and that goes with all things we have in the natural world. Glad you enjoyed it Lee.

One of the most amazing clip of rising moon i'v ever seen. Everything in this is simply stunning; and what it makes it realy special is the people moving in the backgroung ..... witnessing greatness of God's creation.
Grateful for sharing this with us Dandelion

On a personal note,I WISH I was there! I own a pair of high quality binoculars that would have been great to see it in! I need to drive out to the country sometime and do a bit of moon watching and stargazing!

Yup, tree too Mitchell. Is why we are interdependant upon each other. Tree breath in our carbon dioxide we breath out gives us back oxygen we need to breath in. What a lovely system. We are all interconnected one need the other and we must remember that when we see our environments being destroyed so quickly and without much thought except to profit. Profit at all cost is going to cost us big time.

TY for sharing..wonderful..awesome... beautiful.. amazing..breath taking.
Like a small child I look at this scene and ask yself questions.. is it hollow and is it true the backside is never seen by earth and if so wonder what it looks like.

So much beauty around us. I wish we all could afford ourselves to enjoy it all..

bookmarked and sent to friends and family...thank you. I'll never forget the night in Manhattan walking Punkin and Sheba up the steps to the promenade on the East River. We walked right into the moon...
