The inspiration of moonlight
Today’s Video of the Day from NASA Goddard features mesmorizing images of the Moon inspired by the mood of Claude Debussy’s best-known piece, Clair de Lune, which means moonlight in French.
The film resembles a nature documentary, following the light and shadows reflected across the surface of the Moon by the Sun as it rises and sets.
The video was arranged to accompany a performance of Clair de Lune by the National Symphony Orchestra Pops as part of NASA’s 60th anniversary celebration.
