A blue moon rises over Cape Byron Lighthouse in 1,038 images

Watch more with these video collections:

Just a few miles away from Cape Byron Lighthouse, overlooking Byron Bay in Australia, self-taught nature and landscape photographer Luke Taylor stood on the beach and took 1,038 images of the July 31, 2015 blue moon. He then stitched the images together, creating a moon rise time lapse that simulates real time.

Next: Watch astrophotographer Mark Gee’s real time moon rise over Wellington, New Zealand, a video that inspired Taylor. Also: More lighthouses.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
