Dark side of the Moon may refer to:


The term "Dark side of the moon" is a reference to an area on the moon’s surface where the sun is not shining during the change of the lunar phases and is therefore seen as a dark area on the moon's surface. The dark side of the moon is the side that faces away from the sun at any given time. The use of the term "Dark side of the moon" in reference to an area on the Far Side of the Moon is an obsolete metaphor since 1959 when photographs of the far side of the moon were taken in full sunlight by Russians and published in an Atlas of the Moon in 1960.
