Full Moon Video













Believe it or not, this up close and personal look at the surface of the moon was taken from the backyard of an astronomy enthusiast in Nottingham, UK, with only the help of a webcam and a telescope.

This time-lapse sequence films the progress of a very full moon in January of 2011.





Clouds in the atmosphere add a spooky glow to this video of the moon, also taken in January of 2011.





To get the whole picture of how the moon orbits, NASA and Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio created this animation video that shows the Moon throughout the entire year of 2011. With an entire year packed into 2 and a half minutes, this time lapse video allows the daily alterations of the moon’s orientation, illumination, and orbit to be seen clearly. This new technology is available due to measurements made by the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter, or LOLA, that is aboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.
