Calm down ,no need to be so personal,I am recalibrating what I am seeing ,just the same as everybody and ,yeah there is something odd ,but clprime does have a observational point,although on closer checking ,3 areas look out of tilt by a degree accordingly in my previous post.
God help me ,I just woke up,yawn
LOOK pictures courtesy of member Mickey Faroot page 4
what?

You guys talking about me behind my back?


I've been off tracking down something to satisfy the conditions of my last post. And, success...

First, a picture taken in Sweden in 2008 (possibly 2009...it took some effort, with no obvious date on the page, but the source has copyrights up to 2008, and the page featured an ad from 2008, so that year seems a best-guess):

Sweden - 2008


Second, a picture taken in Sweden in 2011:

Sweden - 2011


Any difference?
Any at all?

I just step outside and took a picture, What do you see different?

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.


I had a good flick between them too and obviously I can see the difference but I assumed that was normal. I'm such a moon noob.

I also mentioned this thread to a Norwegian friend earlier who showed me a picture she'd taken of the moon in February (which I don't have, sorry) and it looked very different to both of mine but again, I assumed that was normal.

To be honest though, unless it suddenly exploded or began bouncing across the sky with a cartoon, "BOING!" I'd probably think it was just going about it's business as usual and everything was normal.


From a Kiwi to a Scot.....thank you thank you!!!!

Amazing photos.


You are absolutely welcome my Kiwi friend.

Bit hard to see the polar tycho,Clavius South on those photos and mickeys are ,as posted for all ,definetly showing a twist of that area.The debate has begun,or has it.

Well is a slightly different angle than the two I commented on, but the dot is way further over, and there is a degree of shift to the right. Just pretend its a clockface and go by the dot on the right hand side. In the top picture its just past 2 o'clock and the bottom its 3. 7 % shift or more?

Yeah ,I know unity,just can`t debate with a degree of optimism but ,yeah after going out and checking myself, Mickey has something here,I am going to check with astronomer friend,I can`t ever remember the seas and particularly northwestern mare imbrium sinus iridium and polar points moving,even Western Mare Imbrium, northeast oceanus procellarum is higher ,now thats odd,in light reflection it would merely show differing shadows (Phases) and ,speeding of rotation would`nt change the angle of the regions but would show more of the darkeside of the moon,which has never happened,somitts up.Sorry,for going on a bit.It would appear the second image is normal but the first is odd

Note here.

Hope this helps to note the oddity.quote]

I can see the moon very well when it peeks through the storm clouds. I can clearly see the Rabbit tonight.

It's a beautiful sight.

I don't know what you guys are viewing but it's like 2 am here in Mississippi, clear skies, beautiful southern night but I see no difference in the moon. No difference at all. I have been looking like crazy.

The only thing I notice is it is bright like it was the last solar flare we had some weeks ago.

lol, some of you are whacked!


the moon is always moving and changing "angles". lol


its called 'libration".

However the libration is more pronounced as pointed above,definetly more pronounced especially tychos ,its far more to the right in above image by member Mickey Faroot ,run your animation alongside the images above and tychos is way to the right(south polar white dot to members) ,unlike the animation you provided,put a line through the north,south polar of your animation ,tychos does not cross that line,so in effect you have provided more evidence of more wobble,great

This spot is tychos,yes its to the left but moves more to the centre in libration,but not too the right,as above posts.

Yeah brilliant ,thats added more too notice for sure,I was`nt sure but that libration animation has made it even more prominent,tychos has passed the veritical axis more than it would according to the images.Get better look tonight.
God almighty its even more to the right in this members photo WTF?www.abovetopsecret.com... twisted pasted and edited ,cool

The moon is extremely bright tonight, it's cool that even people half way across the world can see the same thing that I can if that makes sense, haha.

Just an interesting tidbit...Google Earth now has a new feature...they have the moon mapped. For those who want to look up tomorrow and compare...Weather says it's gonna be overcast again here tomorrow...sucks for me!!!

Looking up at the moon from my bedroom window now directly overhead 01:38 NZST Sunday morning. The moon is a brilliant bright white, it is as though you are viewing the moon in High Definition, you can make out the dark blemishes and craters with the naked eye, so bright, like sunrise is just around the corner.

Okay, first of all, the moon is a very fluid object. It's orientation is always changing, and we are constantly viewing slightly different regions of it at different times and locations. A single animation is great, but doesn't account for the moon's movement over weeks, months, and years. There's no legitimate way to take a single libration animation and use it to claim that the current tilt of the moon is anomalous.
Here's a collection images showing libration over a period of 2 years (the gif is also available):

Libration: 2 years in 2 seconds

Also, what kind of tilt are you guys talking here? Maybe a couple degrees? How is anyone supposed to "go outside and look up" and notice that small of a difference, even if it is unusual. You're taking large, detailed photos of the moon, comparing them, and claiming that Tycho is a bit off. How is anyone supposed to casually notice the difference, if there is one?

And, the photos I provided, taken in Sweden in 2011 and 2008, show that the current tilt of the moon is comparable to the tilt in the same location 3 years ago. I'm not sure about the "twisting" that's being claimed, but I'm not seeing it. Certainly, the moon in the 2011 photo is "rolled" down ever so slightly, at about a 45 degree angle (the upper-right side of the moon is tilted down/forward, toward the camera, a tiny bit), but this is not a tilt in the way that is being claimed, and is fully expected due to libration.

I dunno...I'm seeing some grasping at straws going on here.
