Moon Over Miami

Thanks to the Goddard Space Flight Center for a wonderful new video composed of images from the lunar reconnaisance orbiter showing a computer rendered Earth, but from the perspective of a far side moon synchronous orbit.

In one perspective we see the lunation of the far side of the Moon, as the Earth spins merrily on its axis.

This video certainly gives a different viewpoint on what constitutes a month!
