Can you be more specific?

You're not Australian, are you?

Yes it does. When the ecliptic is perpendicular to the horizon.
Like it is at the moment.

And it's waning, at the moment. Getting "closer" to the Sun.

Here's a clue; the bright side of the Moon is the side which the Sun is illuminating. At the moment.

what?!! are you saying ...this is NORMAL? That all ove the moon calendar websites say it should be waning... and the top is missing. PLUS.. it will not photograph? Just is giving a huge blurr. I photogragh the sunsets and the moon regularly (3-5 times a month) Ive never seen this "phase" of the moon ...EVER

It is. The New Moon approachith.


Ive never seen this "phase" of the moon
You've never seen a third quarter Moon?

Ever notice how a full Moon always rises at sunset?

May I ask what would cause the moon to be seen in mid afternoon high in the sky? I remember seeing this when I was a kid one day at recess.

A wet moon (also called a Cheshire moon) is the visual phenomenon when the "horns" of the crescent Moon point up at an angle, away from the horizon, so that the crescent takes on the appearance of a bowl or smile. A wet moon occurs when the crescent Moon is low above the horizon and at a point more or less directly above the Sun's (invisible) position below the horizon. This in turn is determined by the positions of the Moon and Earth in their respective orbits, the inclinations of these orbits relative to one another and to Earth's celestial equator, and the observer's latitude on Earth. Wet moons occur routinely in the tropics (where the Sun and Moon rise and set nearly vertically), but rarely in the polar regions (where the Sun and Moon rise and set at a glancing angle or not at all).

The Moon is visible during the day more a bit more often that it is not.
If you see it at mid afternoon it means that Moon is waxing.

NEVER SEEN IT LOOK LIKE THIS.
Or you never noticed.

People more northerly than you, on the east coast, will see the moon more "tilted" than you are. Because the ecliptic is not as perpendicular the more north you go.

But the Moon's actual tilt has not changed. See the link I posted in the post above your last post.

No need to freak. But it's been a while since someone has.

My friend and i just went back up to the field.. for a better visual.. and now we both see... something blocking the rigjt and left edges! the top is missing. neither of us can get a clear picture. were both getting blurry starburts... ??? the right side should be dark today.. NOT THE TOP

I relate as being quantum entangled with the moon.

Don’t really feel tilted atm....

According to the T&Cs, you cannot.

Incorrect. As I said, at the moment the ecliptic is nearly perpendicular to the horizon in Florida. If the side of the Moon were illuminated there would be something wrong, very wrong.

Do you know what causes the phases of the Moon?

Pretty sure it’s the anger of the moon due to lack of sacrifice.
