WATCH: Nikon’s incredible zoom shows the moon moving within arm’s reach


Around 238,000 miles away from Earth is a large white sphere hurtling around our blue planet at 2,288mph.

While you can’t see much of our rocky satellite with the naked eye, devices like telescopes allow you to see it in all its glory. Until recently, though, telescopes were one of the few tools that could zoom in on the moon. But electronics company Nikon changed that with their P900 camera.

A video was uploaded to YouTube by photographer Lothar Lenz, who demonstrated the P900’s super zoom during a clear sky. As the powerful camera focuses, it reveals details of the moon including its well-known craters.

If you pay attention, you’ll notice in the video that the camera itself doesn’t move while it zooms in. In fact, it’s the moon that’s moving.
