Watch The Moon Evolve Over 4.5 Billion Years In Just Under Three Minutes [Video]

We see the moon almost every single night without thinking much about it. We thought about the moon a lot in 1969 when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first men to walk on the lunar surface. The moon never seems to change with the craters and formations looking permanent, but we now know the moon did not always look like it does now. Thanks to NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), a new video is out that shows how the moon evolved from nothing more than a ball of magma to what we see today.

The video covers a span of about 4.5 billion years and examines extreme impact events like the one that created the moon’s South Pole – Aitkin Basin. It also looks at volcanic activity that occured as a result of smaller meteorites hitting the moon. Watch the evolution of the moon for yourself below….absolutely fascinating.
