In the last few weeks I've noticed that the moon seems to be transitioning through each phase a lot quicker than forecast. Each time I notice the moon it seems to have altered a lot from the time before. Last night my suspicions were confirmed. The moon was full despite forecasts indicating that it should be close to a half moon (quarter). There was a full moon 7 days ago so there is no way the moon should be full again last night. Has anyone else noticed this?

In addition to the above, I've gone outside tonight and cannot see the moon at all. I suppose it's possible that it is hidden behind clouds but the sky is virtually clear and I can see a multitude of stars. How does the moon go from full to new in one night, let alone the fact it supposed to be a half (quarter)?

NB: Before anyone jumps on me, I am the OP "speaker" but my current profile is too young to post new threads.

The phases of the moon are controlled by the position of the moon.

if the phases were changing more quickly, this would mean that the moon was moving more quickly in its orbit.

If the moon was moving more quickly in its orbit, the tides would be out of joint, all over the world.

Have you seen any reports that the tides are out of joint, happening twice as frequently as usual?

That was what I meant, but I was leaving the OP to work it out for himself.

Speaker.....

Well exactly.....

That's what I always say!


Kind regards
Maybe...maybe not

Perhaps the tides have nothing to do with the moon. If you were a child and knew nothing of "science" what would your explanation of the tides be?

Think of this. Since the world is rotating at 1000 mph, imagine what would happen to the worlds water if the world were to slow down abruptly by even .5 mph.

I would not want to be a child knowing nothing of science, and I sincerely hope that the world does not revert to that state.

I like your approach, so the planet slowing and speeding slightly would cause the oceans and seas to change position and their waters to 'push up' and 'spread out'.

However surely this would mean that all tides all over the planet would be doing the same thing in the same direction at the same time.... does this happen?..... Anyone?

Sadly, the science I was taught at school was terrible... I was taught that the reason we have gravity, the reason we don't all fly off the planet is because it is spinning so fast and sucking us down.

Now that is an educative disaster of epic proportions.

Orbital speed is a function of distance... the moon is actually moving away from the Earth at about an inch a year, so in actuality the phases are slightly longer as time goes on.

No, the exact timing of high tide varies from place to place all over the world.
This normally happens twice a day, and the "scientific" explanation is that it relates to the passage of the moon over. and on the other side of the planet.

Anyone who denies that the moon influences the tides will have the astrologers down on their .s as well as the astronomers.

That would still take hundreds of thousands, if not millions of years, before the phase changes altered sufficiently enough for anyone glancing up to notice.

i'm pretty sure that the explanation is sound and as good as proven
it's all about gravity and we do understand its workings if not its power or source
gravity makes the world go 'round, literally.


-----------------------------

but back to the OP
a few years ago, there was a blue moon in January and i KNOW that i personally witnessed not just two full moons that month but three.

i know because of careful observation, and noting what was seen, after my suspicions were aroused like yours were, speaker.

however, it didn't happen since then and i haven't admired and observed the moon much, with consciousness, in the last week - which is unusual for me.

it did seem to me, however, that something wasn't quite right with our sister moon, but that's as far as i probed around in my thoughts.

i'll have to check it out now and see what i observe and how it compares.
i'll let you know, if i do!

and just because we see the appearance of too much full moon on any give month doesn't necessarily mean that the tides will be noticeably affected - maybe the change isn't enough if it just comes around once in a great while - or maybe there is something beyond physicality with such apparitions!

i don't know
but i'm not scoffing at all.

Cool. I would never deny the moon was the factor I was just adding weight to his theory. Thanks
