Two amazing moon videos

Will you miss the solar eclipse? Here are two videos that show the wonder of the moon – including the restored moonwalk.

Only one part of the country will experience a complete solar eclipse, but that doesn't mean people aren't gearing up for the rare event. About 32 million people in the U.S. live in the Totality path, and officials expect another 5 million people will travel to capture the moments. Krispy Kreme even released an Eclipse donut! But for most people, it's either a non-event or it's spoiled by work, the weather, or something else. For the lunar super fan, there is almost something better. And for a real, once-in-a-lifetime moment in human history: the restored first human steps on the moon.

After thousands of years of people seeing the moon and making wild guesses about it, science prevailed and man touched the moon. In 1969, the American space flight Apollo 11 landed the first humans on the lunar crust. Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin landed the Eagle at 20:17 UTC on July 20, with Armstrong becoming the first human to set foot on the lunar surface six hours and 39 minutes later. The filming of this has been restored and published.

The next video is from NASA showing how incredible the moon looks in 4K resolution. The footage was captured using NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, a spacecraft tasked with recording the different sides of the moon and capturing the satellite in all its glory.

This footage was captured in 2011 when the spacecraft was launched on a mission called “Tour of the Moon,” in which the camera visits many interesting locations to show the various features of the lunar terrain. The footage was recently released with voiceover and 4K resolution, so people were making popcorn, watching it with their friends, and screaming every five seconds about how weird and weird space was.

The tour shows the viewer the different sides of the Moon, including the parts facing Earth that are visible through a telescope and the areas that are only visible from space. It also contains digital elevation models that show what the terrain is like.

The host of the video explains the different parts of the moon and tells you about interesting things, such as a part of the moon that experiences the coldest weather events on record.
