The above link is for the site that shows without a doubt that I am correct. Shame on those who dis-info us. and Nasa and wikipedia for example and few others on ATS .. Shame on you.. Telling people a pig is a goat and a goat is an elephant...

I have found more people are becoming aware of the moon and stars. I'm not sure why we are all suddenly looking to the sky, but I've found that the same sky I've looked at all my life suddenly looks different to me. I'm more curious, its almost as if we are looking for something to be wrong, but my Stellarium has assured me every night, that everything is in the right place, so maybe we are just becoming more aware of the sky.


Stellarium is just animation and can be faked. If you want the real thing go outside.

I think this should clear up any doubts.. Look at the links below.
www.math.nus.edu.sg...

In the link above notice the view from earth example as you click the play arrow below on the right..

Here is a quote .The quote is from the link below the quote



If you're near the equator, the sun sets more or less straight down, so the crescent does the same--that is, it looks like a dish. The angle varies quite a bit over the course of the year due to the earth's axial tilt and so on, but on average the crescent is centered at the 6 o'clock position. In more temperate latitudes, the sun sinks at an angle, so the crescent points in that direction. At 30 degrees north latitude (about New Orleans), the crescent on average is at the 5 o'clock position on the lunar face; at 45 degrees north (Minneapolis), it's at 4:30.

The point is, "We are seeing and equatorial moon in Las Vegas Nv.. !!!! Does anyone care? I woul;d hope so...
How about some feedback on this and remember the op for the thread..

Mhmm, I'm usually outside when I'm looking at my stellarium. When I see them all match up along with other programs, I know I'm not seeing anything unusual. I have seen some unusual things that weren't explained before by these sorts of programs.

Not sure what your getting at here, I've been outside for the past 5 evenings with my Celestron looking at the moon and a few other bodies this week and have not noticed anything out of the ordinary. I use Nexstar SE for automatic tracking and its not noticed any oddities with orientation.

I know this sounds crazy. But didn't anyone notice the moon last night. Did it not look a lot lower, yesterday the moon was behind my trees, today it was way above. Also, the stars looked a lot higher. Today the Moon is higher and stars look at a lot lower. I am sober as a rock. I'm just curious if anyone else noticed this.

Thanks.

OMG yes I did did and commented to a friend about it. I get out of work at 2:00 AM , and the moon was MUCH lower last night that it was tonight.

Yeah see, I'm not the only one. It looked totally weird yesterday, because I said to myself, I thought the moon was suppose to be in the sky and not dropping like a sunset. That is what it looked like. Then today it was totally up in the sky.

I agree with going outside, but take your laptop with you and if Stellarium doesn't match what you see, you should let somebody know.

I have no idea what you mean by "faked". Have you ever seen a case where Stellarium and the sky weren't a match?

I haven't.

I don't think the OP has grasped this concept yet.

On Thursday I got out from work around 21:30, and I saw the Moon, slightly bigger than half, with the "flat" side to the left, as if it was a "D".

When I was going to sleep, at 01:50, I went to my apartment's balcony, as I always do, and I saw the Moon, almost setting behind some buildings. I thought it was a good opportunity to take a photo (digital photos cost nothing
), so I did.

Unfortunately, the photo is slightly above the file size limits of the new ATS uploads, so I had to crop it using GIMP, as seen on the EXIF data.



As expected, the Moon did not look the same as when I had seen it some four hours before, because of the way the Moon moves around the Earth and we do not, so we look at the Moon always from a fixed perspective, while the Moon keeps on moving.

Yesterday, when I went to the balcony, the Moon, as expected, was not yet in a spot from where I could photographed it (and I was too tired to wait).

Nothing strange is happening.

PS: as you can see on the photo, there was nothing around the Moon, except the side effects of a slight shaking of the camera.

PS and sorry to disagree but your very wrong.. The aspect the moon has when it starts to rise is the same aspect it should have at setting because!!!!! It follows the sun throughout the day and our perspective of that is supposed to be constant.. Further more the boat moon is never supposed to be visible except close to the equator. If you read the links I provided ( and They are factual based on scientific facts ) you will see this. You can argue the positions of the moon when it sets and rises but not the light on the bottom "Boat Moon" only the equator and the word Equator Means EQUATOR !!!

Love the way give a site produced by a UK Junior School (aimed at 8-11 year-olds) as proof yet dismiss hard science, observation and photographic evidence as nonsense.

I read your links and they say nothing about our perspective of the moon being constant, because it certainly isn't.

From our perspective the moon makes a complete rotation once every 29 days or so, therefore during every 24 hours time period we see the amount of the sunlit part of the moon changing by roughly 1 part in 29. That my friend, is NOT constant.

If you feel I'm missing something, please quote the part of your source that you think I missed.

There is a once in 10 000 year astrological arrangement that is like Revelations 12 overhead right now, including the moon, which is closest to the earth as it will be in another 10000 years, relating to the equator.

jheneaiko.tumblr.com...




On the 26th the moon will be on the equator.

On the 27th is a new moon (practically on the equator), and lunar perigee. This means new moon on the equator as close to earth as it is going to get in this orbit. ...


what does this mean? well this particular alignment obviously is once in a zodiacal age, perhaps tens of thousands of years will pass before we get this exact alignment again with the moon at perigee.

That may be what it says and thats ok but the boat moon has been here in Las Vegas for three nights in a row and I will take pics of it tonight

The aspect is the same, the relative position is not, because we are not looking at as if we were the Earth.

If you can do it, try this:
when you see the Moon rising, lay yourself on the ground, with your head pointing to the north, and look at the Moon. Take a photo or make a drawing of how it looks to you in that position.
When the Moon as at half way through the sky, do the same, laying on the ground with your head pointing to the north and your feet to the south, and look at the Moon, taking another photo.
Repeat the process when the Moon is setting, then show us the photos and tell us what you saw.

No need to shout. Look more at the Moon and you will eventually understand it.

Try to take photos when it rises, when it is at the highest point over the horizon and it sets, that's the best way of seeing what's happening.
