Rising of the Supermoon by Dan0128 Rising of the Supermoon by Dan0128
Got into a decent position for the rising of the "supermoon". I had never tried to make a GIF out of a moon rise before so this is pretty much a trial run. That and I decided at the last second to actually go ahead and make this GIF at all. It spans a little over 4 minutes in real time just to give you a sense of how fast the moon actually does rise. More may come in the future.

If used, please do give credit. These are not easy to make and require about 4-5 hours of work and I can assure you, finding GIFs like this on the Internet is not a common thing so I will know if you take it!!! Thank you

I like this a lot. Gif creation is not easy and they they do not compress well.

Thank you very much and I have been through a lot with making GIFs and the techniques and the programs I use. I always seem to be finding a way to improve them so keep an eye out for them. Plus, I have quite a few uploaded here already

I was so mad I missed it because of work! Does anyone know why it started out orange?

The same reason the sun appears orange/red when it is low in the sky/close to the horizon: In the spectrum of visible light, blue and green wave lengths are shorter than yellow, orange, and especially red wavelengths. Our Atmosphere in turn acts like a giant lens which can scatter the smaller wavelengths when a light is beaming more parallel through the Atmosphere than when it is beaming perpendicularly. A better explanation can be found here; I was just paraphrasing:

Haha it was alright. I was actually expecting it to look bigger when it was rising. However, it's luminosity was fierce!
