Just roughly from the two pictures. The dot at the top, lined up close to noon (this is rough) and the middle of the wide shadow on the side, was around 7 (on a clock face). Your latest pic shows the dot at 1 , and the middle of the wide shadow at 8, so its a shift to the right facing it, by some degrees.

There may be another explanation? Aside from Elenir?

I've also taken a few moon pictures recently (in Scotland, last one about an hour ago) and I haven't noticed anything unusual although I'm certainly no expert.

I've cropped these so as you can see more clearly (and I admit they're not very good. Mainly because I have no idea what I'm doing and they're hand held shots but you can just about tell it's the moon of Earth).

An hour or two ago:

Both look quite, "moony" to me.

I am in the uk Yorkshire and I could see exactly what you are describing here
I can not look at the moon for too long as it strains my eyes.
I have never seen the moon tilt to this degree before!

Well if you do a quick google image search you can grab some old nasa pics and from the one I see here it looks to be a little off not a whole lot but like maybe 10-15 degrees kinda weird...but wait maybe the pic your comparing it to is from space


ETA nope it looks within a degree of the right position...not to mention with all the people looking at it while it's so close this would be huge news and would be everywhere...

You can use Bluetooth maybe or maybe you can email the photo to yourself. Not know what phone you have that is the best I can do.

By the way I tried to take a picture but the moon kept overloading the white balance no mater how low I turned it.

For some reason I can't get the pics to show up small enough to see in the post full-frame..ugh...here are links:

OMG!!!!
Look at the first photo, please.
Look at the moon, please.
Take note of the location of the dark spots (mares) on each. Compare the two.
This is absolutely incredible, it just should not be.

Well CLPrime nailed in on page 3. I am suffering from lunar madness in assuming this is not a normal moon position. Sure is nice to finally see the sky again, though, after weeks of clouds.

I tried to go outside but it's to cold.

You know us Californians.

There's nothing differed to the moon partner.
I wish I didn't have to be the one to tell you this but
you need to quit looking at it. It's not even any closer
or bigger. I still can't see the other side of it. Nothing has changed.

You are entitled to your opinion, but you're wrong, again. Find a picture of the moon in a book published prior to May 2010 and compare it to the photos posted in this thread. Find several pictures of the moon in several books published prior to May 2010 and compare them to each other. All show the same orientation, the current moon looks nothing like that.
Post a source, in print, published prior to May 2010 that matches the picture posted in this thread.

All I've noticed so far is that everything is lit-up like I've never seen before and the glow on the clouds makes it look there is a storm brewing, even though there is not any precipitation around. I've noticed it creating a trance-like effect on me...I've actually had trouble pulling away from it.

You (or I) need to find two pictures from the same location at the same time of night when the moon is at the same phase...one from a few years ago, and one from this year. That's the only way the orientation of the moon should absolutely be the same. Given two such pictures, if the orientations are different, then you're observations are correct. Otherwise, it's simply the positioning of the moon that appears to change its orientation.

Thanks to all those pasting photos....

I always like to see what others are seeing when they describe these wonder events

our weather is overcast and raining here so I get to see nothing

CLPrime is correct as the moon does rotate on its axis although we should usually see little variation on its appearance,I have to say though it does look a little odd,but considering the light reflects of the moon ,it looks like its reflecting slightly more at a angle than would be normal.Yeah something to it,just went out and checked,yep slightly odd,remember it is getting closer to earth in its ecliptic so that would account for the different light reflecttion.
still cool and weird though and if it does rotate more then usual then we will all soon notice it as the man in the moon will definetly look odd

can II just ad if each member opens both your photos and opens one after the other they both appear different angled,I clicked between both like a movie flick and ...wellcheck that out,the orientation has rotated at a angle according to your pictures northern Mare Serenitatis,northwestern Mare Imbrium,Sinus Iridium,Tycho,Clavius South polar point ,moved,yeah summit odd.

QFT, as always is funny to see how people completely disregard CLPrimes two posts throughout the pages and go straight to the posts that would create a bigger buzz in this thread.
Go read about the moon's orbit and rotation... the only thing tilting slightly off angle here would be your head when you go "ohhhh" after having read it.

It's funny how people will notice something for the first time and think they are seeing something unique.
