Full Moon Silhouettes, New Zealand
One impressive Moonrise was captured Jan28-2013 over Mount Victoria Lookout in Wellington, New Zealand. Astrophotographer Mark Gee placed a camera about two kilometers away from the lookout and pointed it to where the Moon would rise. The above 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 moving around! It takes just over three minutes for the Moon and the Sun to clear the horizon(they look the same size… remember eclipses) and each day the Moon rises about fifty minutes later than “yesterday”. The Sun, the Moon, the Milky Way, the planets and the stars all travel across the sky at the same speed, all the time.
Mark Gee is the photographer and Dan Phillipson’s song “Tenderness” is the music track.

What is reddit?
I’ll be showing people who don’t use reddit this, easy to understand explanations rock.
Especially the part where CGP says “Reddit is like life, it is what you make it”. I think this is also true about Facebook, Twitter, etc. Anyone who complains about these sites are lame are basically mostly blaming their own decisions. If for example, your Facebook experience is horrible, it’s probably because your friends are boring. If your Twitter experience is lame, you’re probably following the wrong people. Similarly, if you’re having a bad experience on reddit, you might want to reconsider the subreddits you’re subscribed to.

Whale sharks and manta rays are kept amongst many other fish species in the main tank.
