Technically you got it wrong too. The moon is in a synchronous orbit around the Earth, so that the same side of the moon always faces the Earth.
Artistic license nowithstanding?
Okay, when I did it I couldn't remember if the same side always faced the Earth or always faced the Sun.
I'll try to develop a habit of decent research before doing such silliness.
[Edit] Wiki research reveals:
The Moon is in synchronous rotation, meaning that it keeps the same face turned toward the Earth at all times. This synchronous rotation is only true on average because the Moon's orbit has a definite eccentricity. As a result, the angular velocity of the Moon varies as it moves around the Earth, and is hence not always equal to the Moon's rotational velocity. When the Moon is at its perigee, its rotation is slower than its orbital motion, and this allows us to see up to eight degrees of longitude of its eastern (right) far side. Conversely, when the Moon reaches its apogee, its rotation is faster than its orbital motion and this reveals eight degrees of longitude of its western (left) far side. This is referred to as longitudinal libration.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_orbit
