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. The inspiration of moonlight as shown above in the video shows that Our moon makes Earth a more livable planet by moderating our home planet’s wobble on its axis.
Also leading to a relatively stable climate, and creating a tidal rhythm that has guided humans for thousands of years. The moon was likely formed after a Mars-sized body collided with Earth and the debris formed into the most prominent feature in our night sky. It is the only celestial a body beyond Earth that has been visited by human beings. The brightest and largest object in our night sky, the Moon makes Earth a more livable planet by moderating our home planet’s wobble on its axis, leading to a relatively stable climate
