First Video of Far Side of the Moon

Fri February 3, 2012


From JPLNews

NASA has released the first ever video of the far side of the moon. Because we always see the same side of the moon all the time, no matter where you are on Earth, we tend to think that the other side must be always dark. In fact, it is often bathe in sunlight as this video attests to.
