Moon phase visualization tool from LRO data and the Goddard Spaceflight Center.
I’d like to point readers’ attention to this wonderful visualization tool produced by the Scientific Visualization Studio at NASA Goddard Spaceflight Center and the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Project. It’s a program that reproduces the Moon’s phase, position in its orbit, distance from the Earth, and libration state. You can bookmark the page and visit the site to enter a date and time for any time during 2018. Or you can download an MPEG movie and keep the information on your own computer.
Enjoy! And a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
