Contemplate for the first time the Moon rotating completely

The Moon takes to rotate on itself the same as its translational movement around the Earth. Because of this, 41% of the lunar surface is hidden from Earth: the so-called hidden face of the moon, the hemisphere of the Moon not observable from Earth.

But in this video created by NASA you can see the full moon.

Composed of 36 complete mosaics (110,000 images), and covering a whole lunar month condensed in 24 seconds, all sent by the probe Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) of NASA, a virtual movie of rotation of the Moon in high resolution has been composed.

This hemisphere was hidden from human sight until the Soviet automatic probe Luna 3 photographed it for the first time on October 7, 1959. Currently, more than 20 new missions to the Moon are under active development in four different countries.
