NASA, the US space agency, reveals the hidden side of the moon, invisible from Earth.
Images are unpublished. In a video on line this month, NASA, the US space agency, reveals the hidden side of the moon, invisible from Earth.
This video was computer generated from the readings of the spacecraft Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. The space agency then created a timelapse with Earth in the background.
Launched by NASA in 2009, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter probe mapping the entire face of our satellite.
A number of people who’ve seen NASA’s annual lunar phase and libration videos have asked what the other side of the Moon looks like, the side that can’t be seen from the Earth. This video answers that question. The imagery was created using Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter data.
