How many times have you looked up at the moon in the sky, without a care for how it got there, or what's happened to it, you just look at it.

Most people have no idea how important the moon is to the Earth being able to support life.

While it does make a very awe inspiring picture in our night sky, it also makes it possible for our home to be.

NASA put together an animation based off of the pictures taken by the NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.  With our limited knowledge of the moon, and these images, they have produced the history of the moon.

Watch it, and imagine how it would have looked to watch the moon from earth as these events happened.
