wobble

Did you deal with having slightly more than half of the Moon visible to Earth? (there is some sort of complicated wobble) AlbertCahalan 13:29, 25 February 2008 (EST)

No, sorry, the view is composited from a single static photograph with the terminator overlay. It would need to be rendered in 3D to generate all the possible views needed to cover libration, and the maths would get real, real nasty. --garycmartin 01:34, 26 February 2008 (GMT)
