I thought a telescope would automatically make the image upside down...regardless, the OP states this is nothing taken with a telescope and it does not need to be...The time of the photo was close enough to the setting moon that the moon would indeed appear upside down in the horizon just prior to setting...

I have been feeling exceptionally dizzy all day today however...
according to stellarium and outside my window...the universe is working as intended currently...edit on 4-11-2011 by Sly1one because: (no reason given)
I've also been incredibly dizzy for the last two days to the point of feeling nauseous. I just mentioned it to my husband this evening that I feel like I have motion sickness. It has finally subsided and I feel much better right now. It could be attributed to just about anything, I guess, but I just thought I would chime in since you posted this.
And to the OP, I just went outside and looked and I actually can not see the moon at all. I don't know if its being blocked by fog or clouds or what but I can't see it...
I am in southern Idaho.

I was wondering when this mouth's "the moon is upside down' thread would happen.
News flash! the earth rotates on it's axis.
Come on, people.
I love a good conspiracy as much as the next person.
But the moon "flipping over" is clearly due to the earth's rotation. Look at the animation posted.
There may be things to get worked up over, but NOT this.
Yeah everybody, just LOOK at the animation, it is all the proof anyone needs. Now wait here, I have an animation of a coyote making rocket shoes out of parts he purchased from Acme Industries.
Ok . Lets say I am off a few degrees? 5? that ok? and the sun's path across the equator (ecliptic) is then 6 degrees below or south of the equator. The moon is never more than 5 degrees off of the sun's ecliptic . So if we err on the side of generosity then we subtract the 5 degrees from the 6 and we are 1 degree south of the equator still. The point is the moon cannot be further north than 5 degrees from the sun. ( It could be south of the suns ecliptic but we wont go there) So the moon is 1 degree at least below the ecliptic and I live on the 36th parallel. The boat moon is only visible if you are on the equator or no more than approx 10-13 degrees north or south of it .. How then at 36 degrees , which is where I live can the boat moon be viewable?
