The Moon Hour by Hour in 2012: NASA Video (amazing)



Folks at the NASA Goddard Scientific Visualization Studio created this animation showing the moon hour by hour as it looks from Earth over the entire year 2012.   According to NASA, the tipping, tilting and rocking are due to Moon’s eliptical orbit and tilt. Captions in the video, uploaded to YouTube by TheBadAstronomer, explain in more detail.
