Watching the full-moon moonrise in New Zealand

Go to this PopSci site to take a look at this truly incredible moonrise video:




Fabulous, fantastic, or spectacular or whatever adjective that's appropriate, it is an incredible video of moonrise.  The video was taken two days ago over Mount Victoria Lookoutin Wellington, New Zealand. And
 It was filmed by Australian Astrophotographer Mark Gee, who was sweet enough to share it with NASA, who was awesome enough to post it as their Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD).
It is a real treat in life to be able to watch a full moon moonrise like this one.  This is the same moon, the last one of the year of Dragon this year which I took a shot with my personal point-and-click camera two days ago, but please do go there and enjoy this rare video of moonrise!
