I seem to remember watching 'The Sky at Night' with sir Patrick Moore not too long ago who was mentioning Moonispheres, and even how they are made
reversed for the observer. Even he commented how it was odd that the creator designed these things for the naked eye amateur observer yet here we are
with people watching the Moon with planetariums, Meade Telescopes who can't even discern Lunar Features because those who made the maps miscalculated
Magnitude and overcompensated for it.
Yes, actually - A few weeks ago I was on a Greyhound bus between London, Ontario and Toronto. I noticed what I at first thought to be a UFO, but later
realized was the moon. It was incredibly low on the horizon for the time of night (about 8:30pm) and shockingly orange, and very bright. I snapped
pictures of it on my cell phone but lost my USB cable to transfer them to the computer, damn the luck. I noticed everyone else on the bus all looking
out the window to stare at it as well, with one or two others snapping pictures too - I guess I wasn't the only one to take notice of how strange it
seemed. This was on the night of January 21st, so maybe a little farther back than OP was expecting, but I thought relevant to share my experience
There was a solar flare up that was some how creating magnetic disturbances in the atmosphere during the last full moon.. There were much brighter
Northern Lights that were visible much further to the south than they normally would be and the moon was much brighter as well... There was a thread
about here at the time it was going on and one person I believe in Arkansas described the brightness of the moon as being "blinding"... There was
heavy cloud cover here in East Texas and periodically the moon was unobstructed and it was very bright... The whole sky to the horizon in every
direction was illuminated with a bright glow...I have spent the night out and about for a great part of my life and have seen the sky look the same
way but it is a rare occurrence.
Altered tom I too am very concerned about the moon. Around the time of the solar flare I saw the moon in some very odd places and having an odd
appearance. i have spoke with several people who know more about it than me and no one seems to have an answer. Even now the moon is not in the right
place it seems to me. But a few weeks ago i saw it in really strange p[laces in the sky at the same time each night but differing in its location. I
am in Florida and at 8pm it was over my house. Then the next night at 8 pm it was in the east almost on the horizon. I think the earth has wobbled or
moved but im not sure. i would like to know if anyone else has noticed this.

I'm not an astrophysicist but I'm very universal as an individual. I would really like to know what is going on. It would be easier if I received help
from others. If I have to, I'll teach myself the science to find out what is going on. If you look at my video, the moon being in an odd part of the
sky is just the iceberg of what I'm concerned about. IF what I recorded is in fact the moon, then we have something else going on here as well. If you
look at the video, the body that I am filming, is not a steady, solid object. It is shifting.
From what I can see, when the video starts, it is in a teardrop shape. (odd for a spherical object but obviously moon phases can explain this to an
extent.) For the VERY FEW seconds I am recording, it changes it shape. If it was a video of a air/space craft, I would think that it changed the shape
of the airfoil/airframe. The problem is, I don't know what I filmed!!! Who knows if what I am told, what you are told, what the general public is told
about our world, galaxy, universe, is what is really there. If everything we were told, was the absolute, undeniable truth, we would not be enjoying
this amazing website known as ATS.
Obviously, I started to rant a bit right there. I'm not sorry. This is my thread hosted on a public forum so I believe I am in my rights to voice an
Please! Analyze this video and speak your opinion. I doubt we have a lot of time left to figure out what is up.

If this was at the same time as my view, I am in Michigan and the moon was directly West. Food for thought
today july the 4 2011 i look to the sky every idk 10 minutes or so . but all I seen was a little light coming out of the sky and I thought it was
Jesus coming outta the sky to take us but I ran out side and discovered it was the moon ND i WAS A BIT FRIGHTENED because of it being in an different
spot. I stared at the moon and turned my back for at least 2 mins and the moon had gone down after about 10 minutes or 15 the moon had totally
disappeared i really need someone to give me answers i'm not even an adult but is so concerned about what is happening
I stare at the sky all the time, and I must say I am often confused about the position of the moon, I walk to the same spot in two days in different
times, and its in the same position (example). Its often in weird positions to where I expect it to be, but I guess im miscalculating myself. Oh yea a
month back I saw it in daytime.. late like, never ocured I should take a photo?!
