Moon : Earth background shots

Earth background shots

Why weren't there more background shots of the Earth when he was outside on the moon? The moon is tidally locked to the Earth, meaning one side is exposed all the time, which is why we only see that one side. He should've been seeing the Earth every single day, no.

I saw the Earth one time in this movie. Granted, I dosed off while watching it, but it should've been shown more. Maybe they could've done something cool with it, like show different phases or something.

When we're thinking about our own brain, would that be a mental paradox??

The base was on the far side of the moon.

There is an explanation for this, you know.
