This video was filmed in Portugal, during the perfect moonlight of January, known in the popular wisdom for being the brightest in the year.

It is played in real time and we can observe the perceived speed of the moon crossing the sky as a result of the movement of the moon and the rotation of the Earth.

It is inspired by the film of Stephen Carr Sketches of Space: The Moon. vimeo.com/10549764, using the Canon 550D in crop mode.

The music is an excerpt from "Venus, The Bringer of Peace" from "The Planets" by Gustav Holst.
