Moon Timelapse Video Over Los Angeles Looks Like Flaming Ball Fired Into Space

In one of the most spectacular (and simple) examples of time-lapse photography we've seen for a while, Dan Maker Moore gives the impression of an almost flaming moon being fired into space.

The stunning silhouette of Downtown Los Angeles provides the foreground in a film shot over just 28 minutes.

As for the spectacular orange glow of the moon? Well that's down to LA's other notable feature - its shocking air pollution.

LA has the dubious honour of consistently being voted in the top 5 smoggiest cities in America, winning the title several times.

More of Dan's work can be viewed here and is well worth a look for his night time and ariel views of LA
