Photographer Captures 'Red Moon' Timelapse at Cape Byron Lighthouse

A photographer based in Byron Bay, New South Wales, captured timelapse footage of the moon rising behind Cape Byron Lighthouse on September 2.

The footage was captured by Luke Taylor from shortly before 6 pm.

In the description beneath the original video, Taylor explained the obstacles he faced before capturing the footage.

“I got to Belongil Beach and it was howling northerly which is not what you want for this shoot so I grabbed a second tripod for stability and set up as best as I could,” he said.

“There was a lot of cloud lingering on the horizon but, [to] my surprise, enough of the horizon cloud parted to give me a stunning view of the moon rise,” he added. Credit: Luke Taylor via Storyful
