What Does the Dark Side of the Moon Look Like? NASA Shows Us in this Timelapse Visualization [VIDEO]

The dark side of the moon has always been a mystery to us earthlings. So NASA created a helpful video, geared toward those not in the world of space science and exploration, that visualizes the far side of the moon.

“A View From the Other Side” is a timelapse visualization portraying the side of the moon that is never visible to Earth as it passes through lunar phases and rocks on its axis (a movement technically called libration). The images in the video were created using Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter data.

Finally we can see what the dark side of the moon looks like!
