Supermoon Rising Over Brighton England

Amazingly Beautiful Footage!


www.youtube.com...


It was a beautiful sight, as the huge Moon red in colour rose up into the sky, then it turned a golden colour. This was the closest and brightest the moon has been to Earth for 18 years, Lancing college chapel with its big circular stained glass window, looked great next to the moon rising



A "supermoon" is the coincidence of a full moon (or a new moon) with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, or perigee, leading to the technical name for a supermoon of the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system.

Stunning footage
.. I'm trying to work out which hill the Camera is on relation to Lancing College and the A27 (road) as it seems a great spot to film and a must to visit.

Thanks for sharing


ETA: I believe for those interested this is the hill from which it was filmed..

This footage makes me uneasy. And slightly queasy. But I'm a confirmed lunaphobe.

Reminds me of this:

"The Harvest Moon

The flame-red moon, the harvest moon,
Rolls along the hills, gently bouncing,
A vast balloon,
Till it takes off, and sinks upward
To lie on the bottom of the sky, like a gold doubloon.
The harvest moon has come,
Booming softly through heaven, like a bassoon.
And the earth replies all night, like a deep drum.

So people can't sleep,
So they go out where elms and oak trees keep
A kneeling vigil, in a religious hush.
The harvest moon has come!

And all the moonlit cows and all the sheep
Stare up at her petrified, while she swells
Filling heaven, as if red hot, and sailing
Closer and closer like the end of the world.

Till the gold fields of stiff wheat
Cry `We are ripe, reap us!' and the rivers
Sweat from the melting hills."

-Ted Hughes

That is a beautiful spot, the cathedral is amazing too!

I have seen this super moon phenomena before, but nothing like this one!

That is very cool! I happened to catch a picture of it last night....I didn't even know that we were in for a good show. I spent several hours earlier this year trying to get pictures of a supermoon....but I think I like this one better! A friend posted about the incredible moon outside on FB so I grabbed up my camera and ran down the street to get past the trees. From this angle I couldn't catch it until it was up the horizon a bit....and no tripod...but you get the affect:

This was taken in the NW corner of Washington State:

Oh, justs georgeous!

West Coast, thanks for sharing that photo with us!
I was not aware that we were in the Super Moon cycle right now,
as this footage is from March 2011, I just had never seen this before,
and wanted to share it!

Beautiful. Thanks for posting it. In before 'NIBERU/ELENIN/RAPTURE' etc.

It's rare to capture such a nice view of the moon. Appreciate it while it's there folks!

Chinese lantern !!

That's some awesome view.
Wish i could run really fast to the end of the horizon and see if i can jump over in time before it gets too high.

Just to clarify.
The event occurred six months ago. March 19.
science.nasa.gov...

The approaching full Moon is not a supermoon.

No clarification neccessary

That particular "Super Moon" ...of March 19th occured less than one hour away from perigee--
a near-perfect coincidence that happens only 18 years...perhaps thats why the incredible
footage!

Correction: This video remarks on the Super Moon of 1983, however the correct year is 1993. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

Thank you for the clarification. So the video IS the same moon that I sat out in the cold for two hours to get a picture of!
Here is THAT picture from back in March:






And again...for clarification: The previous picture I posted was from last night, 9/10/11. I learned from my pictures in March how to better capture the moon in all her glory

cool video BTS! and if you didn't see my thread on the supermoon this year i think you will enjoy it.
Extreme Super Moon & Current Rise in sun Activity: Effects on earth


it was very eerie for me when I wrote this thread and then having the japan 9.1 so soon after, this quake happened within a ten day period before perigee that I think shows larger activity.
I could see coincidences through this year as-well with the larger quakes being noticed in this 10 day period.
It could be I'm seeing what i want to see, next years maximum perigee will be may 6 so we will see then.


here are some pics i took of the supermoon. i need to resize them again to get better quality the pics came out much better than this.

I agree!!!!


Everything is not 'up for debate'.

In one of my classes, we recently learned that it is not good to constanlty debunk EVERYTHING...

When doing so, you are eventually left with NOTHING.

But anyway, to the OP.....BEAUTIFUL PICTURE

Still beautiful. Thanks for the clarification. The local view of the moon in my part of the world was just beautiful tonight. Not sure what phase it is in...but totally beautiful. After all this talk about the celestial bodies. I think I am going to ask for a telescope for the holidays. whoo hoo!
