These visualizations show the Moon's phases and libration at hourly intervals throughout 2015, as viewed from both northern and southern hemispheres.
Each frame represents one hour. In addition, the visualizations show the Moon's orbit position, sub-Earth and subsolar points, distance from the Earth at true scale, and labels of craters near the terminator.
