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!
