Hi
I’m not very clued up when it comes to space but it has always fascinated me, Ok I brought a Dell streak on Friday the 27th and downloaded the app Google sky map.
Every night I hold it up and look for the moon, and since I have had this phone the moon hasn’t been visible by eye here in the UK, last night about 12 o’clock I held my phone up as normal and the moon is on the other side of the planet.. Is this normal not to see the moon for this long or is because I’m sleeping by the time it comes out?
Thanks in advance
Jay

I got a tad lost in your pseudo witchcraft.

"Every night I hold it up and look for the moon" - because without holding it up, the moon is invisible.

Use more mugwort.

Yes its normal, sometimes the moon rises early other time its late, and sometimes its even visible during the day for a short time.
its because its orbital period and plane is different from ours in relation to the earth sun plane.
the moon always spins me out how it seems to ump around the sky, but if you use a program that can track it though time on you computer like stellarium you see its all normal
