I never been much of a skywatcher until I came to ATS - but I'm also convinced I couldn't see stars until recently.
First time I saw Sirius (like 3 months ago) I stood on my porch and watched it for about 4 hours to see if it would make any sudden lefts!! (I'm not
embarrassed either, shhhhh, even made my kids come out and see it, and I check every night to see where it is now, you know, just in case!)
Anyway, depending on the time of the month, your moon is going to be in different places. Unless you watch it every single night, its going to look
weird. I only know this cause I did it too
I came out one night around 11pm, and I swear not only was the moon level with my head, but it was bright red. I had never seen that before, but
after googling, seems like its just the moons menstrual cycle
(sorry) I tried to take pictures of mine, but they didn't come out so hot.
Anyway, yeah - write it down - keep a sky journal - you'll see what I mean. I personally do not keep track but I do know it had to be around about
the time of the full moon cause it was.... almost a full moon - I mean its obvious when its less than a circle - I point this out cause just last week
was a fullmoon - last sunday actually if memory serves (or actually monday, 2:06am EST)
