A spectacular slow motion Full Moon rises over Washington

I recorded this last evening though our new HD camera looking over the National Mall and Washington.  It is the Full Snow Moon.  The moon rises with an orange glow due to scattering of the blue part of the light (that's the reason the sky is blue) and reddish light is transmitted.  As the moon gets higher it becomes a bright white and you can also watch again and see the reflection of the moon on the Potomac River.  Enjoy
