This is a useful feed to follow if you want to understand the Moon's orbit around the Earth. It shows where the Moon is "above" the Earth, and you can watch this position change as the Earth rotates "below" the Moon. Notice how the Moon moves north and south of the Earth's equator, due to the inclination of the Moon's orbit.
