Awesome, love the way it shows how it is always the same face looking towards us, and we cannot see the far side - nor the darkside - lol!

There is no darkside of the moon really, as a matter of fact it's all dark - Pink Floyd

coincidentally, I just noticed that the full moon of the above cycle fell on my birthday :-)

Yeah, true - that's a nice coincidence :-)

The animation is really intresting to see - I didn't know that the angular size of the moon in the sky changes that much during one revolution!
