Lunation Animation

Click image,
"21 of 23 randomly interviewed Harvard graduates, professors, or alumni got wrong at least one of two astronomical questions (Why are there seasons? and Why are there phases of the moon?)." ~source
See Lunar Libration for an explanation of the wobble.

Woah, Harvard graduates are stupid. Probably because of the big psychology, economics, and law departments at Harvard. You won't get the same response at MIT.

Interesting that libration.
