Rumble / SpaceAh, the Moon. The only natural satellite our Earth has and the subject of great controversy. The Moon is in a synchronous rotation with our planet, which means the same side is always facing the Earth. The first unmanned mission to the Moon was in 1959 by the Soviet Lunar Program with the first manned landing being Apollo 11 in 1969. The dark side of the Moon has been known to spark lots of controversial topics, because we can never see it. Could aliens set up base there? Or is it just dark and desolate?

The Moon landing has also been subjected to divided opinions, and there are lots of people out there that believe that the landing never occurred and everything was filmed in a movie studio. Scientists, of course, don't agree with this because, well, it's just not true.

Then there are the "flat earthers" that think the Moon is just an illusion, much like the rest of the universe, but this beautiful celestial body is real and it is very interesting to study. We can see the Moon with our bare eye, but if we want to take a closer look we have to use some equipment. In this case, the man filming the Moon is using the super zoom of a Nikon P900, and we have to admit, it captures the Moon's beauty in a magnificent way.
