Beautiful High-Res Video Of Moon Doing A Full Rotation

moon-rotating.jpg

This is a composite video made from a bunch of photos taken by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, featuring the moon rotating a full 360-degrees in high definition. You know, I like the moon because it always keeps me company when I'm out wandering the streets at night. It's like a friend that's always there. Maybe not one who will step in and fight for me if I'm getting mugged, but I doubt any of my human friends would either. And speaking of the moon -- it's going to be full tomorrow! And speaking of full moons.... "DON'T DO IT GW." Well I kind of have to now! *shimmying pants to knees* BOOYA! "Ahahahhahahha -- nice novelty Christmas boxers! Do your laundry." I want to go home.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to HK, who often gazes at the moon at night wishing it was a giant laser-based superweapon that's come to destroy earth. Jk jk, that's me.

    Look closely beginning on the 18 sec. mark, you will see a silhouette of Einstein's face, describing the dark spotted valleys as his hair.

    A rotating .gif of this would make a sweet desktop background.

    Why settle for a GIF, when you can use a video?

    I think there needs to be a screensaver of this vid.... or maybe of just half the moon. After those high-res photos of Earth, my computer theme could be complete.
