Our view of the moon over the entire year, a NASA visualization

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.

Watch it in HD!
