Like the companion app Nearside HD, Farside HD shows you the moon as it should be seen – with a twist! Farside shows you the other side of the moon, the side that forever faces away from Earth.
Before 1959, no human eye had ever seen the other side. Now you can view it anytime, with high-resolution imagery, real shadows and real colours, updated continuously and seamlessly in a large, clear image of how it would look right now if you were out in space viewing it from the other side.
Zoom in to a remarkable degree and pan across the surface, or tap the screen to remove the informational overlay and use the app as a beautiful real-time display of just the moon itself.
