A time-lapse video of a “super moon” rising over Newport has gone viral.

The clip, shot by Mike Cohea of Jamestown and shared by ABC News on their Facebook Page on  Sunday, shows a bright moon rising over Newport and a cruise ship traveling in Narragansett Bay.

Because it is not made known when the video was captured, it is not easy to identify if it was, in fact, a “supermoon” or what cruise ship can be seen in the video.

The video has been viewed more than 650,000 times, has more than 250 comments and has been shared more than 3,600 times.

We’re still not sure why the video is titled “Super Moon Rises Over New Hampshire”, but we can confirm that this was shot looking towards The-City-By-The-Sea.
