Fulldome of the Moon's Phases as Seen from Space

This fulldome video provides an illustration of how the Moon passes through its phases — a product of its orbit, which allows different parts of its surface to be illuminated by the Sun over the course of a month. The camera is locked to the Moon as the Earth rapidly rotates in the foreground.
