A drone flight over the Washington D.C. Temple recently made it possible for people to see the Mormon temple from a new angle.

Tony Collins, who posted his video to YouTube July 8, got permission from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to capture the footage.

"Thank you so much - to the Mormon Church for allowing me the privilege of taking these breathtaking images of their very beautiful temple. - A MUST WATCH IN HD!!!" Collins wrote in the video description.

The video has received more than 9,000 views so far.
