What the moon will look like for each day in 2016

If you want to know exactly what the moon will look like (to those in the northern hemisphere, at least), this video by NASA has got you covered. It tracks all the phases of the moon for 2016, that is you’ll see the moon wax and wane as it corresponds to each day of the year. It’s a really cool look at the movements of the space rock.

Though the moon can look pretty much the same to us down here, there’s a lot of uniqueness to each day.

Pretty neat. Hard for me to make sense of some of the text boxes but I would guess the hard tilting is more due to the tilt of the Earth in relation to the moon’s orbit making it appear to roll back and forth? Or does the moon wobble as well?
