Is it possible to give your heart to a heavenly body? We think so because we are absolutely smitten with the moon after viewing it through this camera’s zoom lens. Well, actually Earth’s satellite was already our primary #spacebae, but this impressive, up close and personal look at the lunar surface makes us want to cradle it and hold it close to our hearts.

This mind-blowing footage of the moon’s surface is similar to the image captured by this other amazing camera that zoomed to the moon all the way from a parking lot in Canada (!) in that it also instantly brings the rocky sphere into picture perfect focus. Only this time around, we’re treated to nighttime lunar views that make us want to call up Morticia Addams and Courtney Love for the ultimate moon bath meetup.

As the camera zooms, the moon goes from the blurry, glowing golden neighbor that our human eyes are used to observing without assistance, to the mighty, cratered astronomical body that pulls the ocean’s tides and affects our moods.

As if that doesn’t sound poetic enough, the soothing background music enhances this glorious footage and, oh yeah, we’re head over heels in love with the moon.

SIGHS. We can’t think of anything more romantic than these lunar views and if it wasn’t too late, we’d totally make the moon our valentine.

In the meantime, we’re going to focus on saving up all our coins to purchase one of these incredible camera lenses because our next date with the moon can’t come soon enough.
