Amazing Video of a Fully Rotating Moon

by Kenny Hoeschen

This new video from NASA shows the moon rotating as seen from space. The images that make up this video were rendered to show how the moon looks with the Sun directly overhead, which is not possible to capture in real life. The team that put it together had to capture 36 nearly complete global mosaics (110,000 Wide Angle Camera images) and develop an equation to compensate for the Sun’s angle and view angle as it changed.

Is it too much to ask Apple to allow us to use this as dynamic wallpaper in iOS 7 instead of floating bubbles?
