Incredible Footage Of The Moon Filmed By Just Zooming In On A Camera

Jul 1, 2015 By Houston Barber
It has been over 40 years since the last mission to the moon, but this might be the next best thing. Using a Nikon P900 camera with an 83x optical zoom, this photographer was able to capture vivid images of the moon's surface just from standing in his own yard. Although there were no signs of aliens or any evidence that the moon is made of cheese, what the footage captured is one of the most revealing pictures of the moon I've ever seen.

Although from the footage it seems that the moon is moving, what you are really seeing is the Earth's rotation, which moves about thirty times faster than the moon. The Nikon camera used here is available for $600 for you to zoom into any and everything you want. However, I would not advise using the 83x optical zoom to view the sun.
