dark-side-of-the-moon

NASA’s image and visualization of the dark side of the moon was made possible from the many detailed images captured by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio released an animation of the crater-filled dark side of the moon, the side of Earth’s natural satellite we never see. The new imagery comes from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, which has been mapping the moon since the orbiter’s launch in 2009.

The animation provides a telescopic and wide-angle view of Earth to provide a moon-side perspective. The telescopic view is fixed to the line that connects Earth to the moon, and the wide-angle view is fixed to the moon’s surface. The South Pole-Aitken basin, one of the largest and oldest impact craters known in our solar system, is visible.
