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.
