Did the Moon Just Move in Reverse?!

Take a gander at this strange video????It totally looks like the moon suddenly goes in reverse????but it’s just a unique perspective from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory????The spacecraft studying the sun moves around Earth in a circular orbit????Starting the dusk phase of its orbit, it moved away from the moon????SDO overtakes the moon, but the moon moves faster than the spacecraft ????That’s why it looks like the moon stops and backs up????SDO is a part of NASA’s project to understand the sun’s magnetic field????which can have a major impact on Earth’s technological systems??
