Stunning visualization shows the Moon’s phase and libration at hourly intervals throughout 2020, as viewed from the Southern Hemisphere.

This visualization shows the moon’s orbit position, sub-Earth and subsolar points, and distance from the Earth at true scale. Craters near the terminator are labeled, as are Apollo landing sites, maria, and other albedo features in sunlight.
