Watch how the Moon was formed
New NASA videos show moon up close, how it evolved
NASA today has provided some amazing views of the Moon through two new videos. In this first video, we get to visit different crater sites up close through photos and videos, taken with the latest scientific equipment available.
This second video might even be cooler - it shows animation of how the moon evolved, from its beginnings about 4.5 billion years ago, to crater creation through meteor bombardment.
A lot of the information for the videos and animation comes from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, giving scientists more data to figure out the moon's evolution.
