Are you referring to the difference in orientation of the dark spots from photos of the moon? It is my understanding that, although we basically only
see one side of the moon, we sometimes get to see "slivers" here and there as its rotation around earth is slightly imperfect in regards to seeing
only one particular disc view of the sphere--does that make sense? Anyway, what you photograph one night isn't quite always what you get the next
night. Also, photographers may have various camera orientations when pointed at the moon, thus resulting in the moon appearing upside-down or turned
in different photos.
Now, what do you see that's different?
Anyway, it's a gorgeous thing to see right now. I'll take out my 300mm lens tomorrow night and get some shots to post here.
