Created using mapping data gathered by the space agency's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, the video shows the moon's "dark side" is not really always dark but goes through turns of light and dark just like the side that faces us here on Earth.
"Just like the near side, the far side goes through a complete cycle of phases," NASA says. "But the terrain of the far side is quite different. It lacks the large dark spots, called maria, that make up the familiar Man in the Moon on the near side."

I would love to see some high res pictures of that part of the moon are they also available on LRO ?
All I've got is this image on the LRO site of the far side.
