What a response! I'm very happy everyone is enjoying the video.

I agree, this should be shown in schools.

Thanks to those who posted their own videos. The real time moon rise is beautiful!

Mike

I hope this video can inspire others to get into astronomy like it has for me.

I noticed in one of the moving camera scenes a star that didn't move then just disappeared. Anyone notice that?

I saw that as well, looked decidedly blue. I thought I'd lost a pixel on my monitor. Probably a chip artifact, or possibly an iridium flare?

Cool video. Prof. Brian Cox is the one who got me interested in the universe, which led to astronomy.
