Dark Side of the Moon – level 2

11-10-2022 15:00

People on Earth can only see one side of the moon because the moon is locked to our planet. There is a side of the moon which you can never see. It is called the dark side of the moon.

First images of the side could be seen in 1959 thanks to a Soviet mission. Now, a camera aboard a NASA satellite captured it. It took a series of images. The images show a crater and how the moon moves across the Pacific Ocean towards North America.

Difficult words: series (a set), crater (a large space in the ground which looks like a bowl).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about the dark side of the moon?
