The Moon In 2012.

This is a cool animation put together by the folks at the NASA Goddard Science Visualization Studio which shows our view of the moon for the 2012 year using a rate of a “shot” an hour.

Folks at the NASA GSFC Scientific Visualization Studio created this amazing animation showing our view of the Moon over the entire year of 2012 with time resolution of *one hour*! The tipping, tilting, and rocking are due to the Moon’s elliptical orbit coupled with its tilt. I explain this using captions in the video itself.
