Hi all!!

What about a new take on this - the midnight sun??




It would certainly overcome the "too bright" arguments??

I will have to research that topic and see what I get on the net about a midnight sun at the south pole. It could be, but the ? is, are there trends or records of this having occured cyclically in the "past" and how would we get the photos?

Anyndur,

Your info is what I was looking for about the moon being vible in another location. However, was the moon visible to you at the same time as the "timestamp" of the photos from the webshots gallery?

It's the south pole, which means it's winter time and almost constant darkness. The midnight sun occurs in the noth pole this time of year.

Yes it is moving, I believe, pretty quickly too because it is no longer visible at the pole (just a guess, I haven't checked yet)

Will, click on the link I have above.

Here is my original post of the webshots site info:I have uploade "earlier" photos of this anomaly and posted them on webshots.com:

NOW, the object directly underneath this "moon" is very interesting and I would assume that IT is the moon. These photos do NOT explain how this object is just the moon. Too bright.

Anyone care to save these photos and do a little photo shop work on them?

Anyone still think these "two" objects are just the moon.

If it is, then this has definitely been a learning experience for me. If it is not the moon.... then what?


Oh yeah, and the crescent object underneath it does seem to be a reflection in the lense, BUT what is the object itself?

Sorry, I have updated the link

The world is round not flat, the moon is what 300,000km away, and the south pole is on the axis of the world. Whats the longitude of the base? If its even near your half of the world longitude, then yes they can see it at the same time.

Why does it move so fast? Its their relation to the moon, and their position on the earths axis.

EDIT=
As far as what is in the picture and why it has two images, well simply could there be ice on the lense of the camera, defracting light??? No not in the south pole.

Well, if it is the moon, then that means the SUN is definitely putting out more energy than in the recent past to cause the moon to be THAT bright.

It can't be snow on the lense because on the 4 photos I have online, that lense flare or light defraction is present. I am not sure what it is, and unless someone can show proof with past photos that it is the moon, it will be an anomoly and worth keeping track of to me.

I wonder if this is really all tied in tith the solar activity of present and weather changes we are experiencing?

I put together a mpg clip, didnt notice someone else was doing the same thing, this ones smaller in size though, about 370kb.

download the clip

I was backtracking to around the same time yesterday aswell, figured if it was the moon itd be there. But I couldnt find it, well, a really small light phenomena above the roof was there, Ill get it up aswell in a moment.

i'm going to have to chime in saying it's the moon as well... using my nifty starry night software, i set my location to the same as Casey Station's (65 00' 00.0" S, 109 00' 00.0" E). and looked WSW... about the same height above the horizon is, you guessed it, the moon!

as other people said, the ice and clouds and the poor quality webcam make the light of the moon brighter and more diffracted.

EDIT: actually, the smaller light below the large blot may be the moon itself. i know at the other other stations the cameras are kept inside a plexiglass dome (or something similar) to protect them. the light from the moon reflects off the lens of the webcam onto the glass of the dome, and then back into the webcam.

cmdrkeenkid, well then shouldnt the moon be seen on previous nights and forthcoming in the same manner. I looked up 2 nights before during the same timeperiods, 1.00AM-5.00AM, and only found the very small light just above the building on the previous night.

Clouds could be obstructing the cameras view, but I dont know.
