Before-and-after views of the landing site of Chang'e 6, on the far side of the Moon.

This animation shows before and after views of the landing site of Chang’e 6, a Chinese mission that landed on the farside of the Moon and gathered samples for return to Earth in late June. The craft’s landing engines blew away dust at the site, leaving the site bright white. If successful, Chang’e 6 will bring the first bits of the farside to Earth. [NASA/GSFC/ASU]
