Super Zoom Captures Up-Close Footage Of The Moon
Advanced technology has deprived us of our privacy, however, having state-of-the-art equipment enables capturing impressive footages indeed. In this clip, you can literally see the surface of the moon when filmmaker zooms in 83x on a Nikon Coolpix P900. Amazing!
The Moon, the only natural satellite of Earth is a subject of great controversy. Being in a synchronous rotation with our planet, it is the same side that always facing the Earth. The first unmanned mission to the Moon was in 1959 by the Soviet Lunar Program with the first manned landing being Apollo 11 in 1969. The dark side of the Moon has been known to spark lots of controversial topics, because we can never see it. Could aliens set up a base there? Or is it just as dark and desolate as the side we do see?
The Moon landing has also been subjected to divided opinions, and there are lots of people out there that believe that the landing never occurred and everything was filmed in a movie studio. Scientists, of course, don't agree with this because, well, it's just not true.
Then there are the ‘flat earthers’ that think the Moon is just an illusion, much like the rest of the universe, but this beautiful celestial body is real and it is very interesting to study. We can see the Moon with our bare eye, but if we want to take a closer look we have to use some advanced equipment. In this clip, the filmmaker captured the Moon using the superzoom option of a Nikon Coolpix P900, and we have to admit, it captures the Moon's beauty in a magnificent way.
This digital camera can travel 239,000 miles in space to approach the Moon and take a selfie with it! Telescopes are so overrated now that Nikon released its COOLPIX P900 camera with a zoom so powerful, you can see craters on the moon's surface. Neat!
You can see the actual holes on the moon's surface where it's been hit by asteroids and comets thanks to the cameras 83x zoom. It's so powerful you can even watch the moon move across the sky as Earth rotates. How cool is that?
