Phage, I just read the page you posted, childs education page??!! really! must be great to be you!
What I was saying, from what I saw, was that the waxing crescent moon, as seen from central Mexico instead of being a "normal" happy smile, i.e. lit
from below, was a sad frown, i.e. lit from above i.e. behind me
While at the same time the moon in Northern Europe was as shown on the diagram for this time of year. However does the latitude of the vantage point
not alter ones perspective of this (well I know it does) so although the picture in your child page shows the moon as would be say, in southern US,
Mexico, in winter at further northern latitudes we are more accustomed to see this more upright, even in winter. this just did not seem right.
