Three orbits over a rotating lunar terminator.

This 4k video shows the Moon from the viewpoint of a vehicle orbiting above the terminator, 3 times, while the Moon rotates once underneath it.
Relief of the lunar surface is exaggerated to bring out the details, and contrast the relatively smooth “seas” with the older more heavily cratered areas.

Music is CC licenced by the wonderful Cousin Silas.

This is based on my similar video of Mars, but with the Moon in place underneath the viewpoint instead.

I studied astronomy at University College London, but failed to get my degree. For many years pre-internet, I ran the bulletin board "Starbase 1", which is why you will frequently see me referring to myself as that! I was on the board of the IAAA. I operate exclusively in digital formats using many different software packages. Most often Lightwave 3d, Vue, Gaea, and Affinity Photo. I also enjoy oddball graphics packages like Xenodream, Amberlight, and others.

I'm particularly interested in the early Soviet space program, and I have served as a consultant on that subject.
