Caption

Lunar libration sequence. Sequence of twenty-four Full Moon images taken each month over a period of two years. This illustrates a phenomenon known as libration, where the apparent diameter and tilt of the Moon varies due to variations in its orbit around the Earth. The sequence runs in rows from top left to lower right. Photographed from Brittany, France, from May 2005 to April 2007.
