People on the Street React to the Moon in the Most Awe-inspiring Way | Short Film Showcase National Geographic


Spur-of-the-Mountain : *Guy talking on phone* “Hey hold on, hold on I’m looking at the moon”

Bishwajit Sutradhar : Now I want a telescope.

Phoenix Uprising : I did the same thing with my mom. I will never forget her reaction when she saw the moon for the first time through my telescope. Her reaction was pure joy and amazement. She told me “no wonder you are always outside with your telescope”! I love sharing these experiences with family and friends.

Lucky Ferals : Someone should go on a telescope tour. Coming soon to a city near you....

Divakar Singh Bhadouriya : National geographic is best👍👍👍👍👌👌👌👌👌👌👌

Rasmus Nielsen : Clair De Lune - perfect choice of music for this video :D

Mustafa Ahmed : Love the calire de lune in the background.

- FREE HACKS - : For any of you wondering which that telescope is, that's a 12" Sky-Watcher Dobson with a Tele-Vue 13mm Ethos eyepiece. A total price of $ 2700. But you don't need these high-end scope to look at the moon, just go to a telescope shop ( NOT WALMART or ANY DEPARTMENT STORE ) and ask them for a 6 inch reflector for around 400$ and have fun for a lifetime. :)

Jonathan Springs : If only people could focus on cool stuff like this and not race related drama.

Inspiring Reflections : We are all kids pretending to be adults!

David Buschhorn : And people in cities? That's ALL you can see. The moon. I live far from cities and the sky is breathtaking with stars. Each one a bright speck on the dome over you. Just like those photos you see on science sites. Someday, if you're driving at night through Iowa or something, take an exit and drive a mile or so away from the freeway. It only takes a few minutes. Get out of your car and look up. If someone pulls over and asks what you're looking for, the real answer would be, "Me, I guess."

He is my President : Truly a beautiful video.

Kerry Li : Wish everyone is bored like him so we can have the chance to see the moon...

Mary Stachowiak : Oh my God. . .What a Wonderful World this Could be!

Srijana Baruah : I'd like to change sides,to get a view of the earth from moon😊😂

Vivek Jadiyar : You and your telescope are wow!!!

toxic reaction : Now do one with the sun😂

Kelly White : Good job!! We need more people and institutions doing this sort of thing. It's kind of sad to think these people have never seen the moon up close... everyone should experience it.

Márcio Campos : Knowledge is only knowledge when shared... Thanks for showing people one of the wonders of life and what comes with it.

Rahmad Renaldi : The moon is round, yet people said earth is flat

Carl Mortera : Every people reaction: O my God!


MartyKuB : Clair de lune fits this video perfectly.

Akshin Kashyap : Take my money💰 and give me that

Susan Evers : PERFECT musical accompaniment. Thanks for sharing!

Fookat TV : Cool vdo..I have Telescope. And uploaded moon transit vdo. Thanks.

Abelatif Kouloud : this is beyond words!!!

Sir Squegg : That was 12 year old me’s reaction too. 😀

CJ official : thats touch my feeling

Tobias Petersson : The universe is a beautiful place with beautiful planets, stars, nebulae and galaxies. Just Beautiful

James Eddleman : to think my boy Galileo didn't take his big scopes to the streets.
