A long (37 minute) exposure of the moon passing across the sky by Finnish photographer Janne. Petapixel’s Michael Zhang explains:

Janne was shooting with a Nikon D800 and 100-300mm lens at 300mm, f/8, and ISO 100. The trick behind the shot was a 10-stop neutral density filter, which greatly cut down the amount of light hitting the sensor and allowed Janne to shoot a 2258-second exposure.
