I'm almost 50 years old and I'm not a professional Astronomer or even an amatuer but I have seen something in the last few days that puzzles me.

As long as I can remember the waning and waxing moon slivers from either the left or the right side. This month it is slivering from the bottom?

If this has ever happened before I must have missed it but I don't beleive that is normal. It would seem to indicate the moon or the earth has altered it's ordit somehow. For perspective I live in KY.

Can anyone explain why this has suddenly happened?

I will try to snap a picture tonight but I'm not sure if my digital camera has a long enough exposure to capture it.

However, sans a picture just walk outside tonight and see it for yourself - very very odd looking.

Only explanation I can think of is we've actually tilted...and by we, I mean the whole freakin' planet.

But if not...well, try not tipping your head?

I'm in Alaska, and the silvering side of the moon was damn near at the bottom of the moon, that was two days ago.
Never seen it like that before.
There was another thread where a guy took pics with reference points, I called CGI, but now have seen it myself.

Strange, figured I'd put my 2 cents in.


Yep, the post after, good link, the guy in vegas, LOL thanx Corruption Exposed

Cherubbaby noticed this last year and started a thread on it:

The Moon Is Upsidedown Tonight ! Las Vegas, Nevada

Many people dismissed it as crazy talk but both sides made a compelling argument. Good idea to start a thread though, if something like this is possible this should be the place to discuss it.

I personally am not in the "know" when it comes to this stuff but I'm sure some of the resident experts will be in to share their opinion.

This will probably end up being a wild ride OP, good luck

I noticed this a few weeks ago. The moon moved from upright to almost on its side in the space of a few hours. Or I should more correctly say the light/shadow had moved.

On second thoughts maybe it's us that has moved giving us a different view point.

yup...i always remembered seeing it wax and wane from left to right (or vice verse)...never top to bottom (or vice verse).

you're crazy, though...you should lay off the conspiracy drinks and stop looking at the sky...go watch some TV...it'll be good for you...

This WEBSITE explains the reason for this, it also has a few diagrams. This is a normal occurrence.

Yes yes! What gives?

I saw this last night and wondered "hmmm I dont remember ever seeing the moon look like symbol found on many muslim/arabian temples".

Very odd indeed. Thought I just wasnt paying much attention to the moon through the whole year. Heck, I was starting to think that was normal.

Thanks! Would love to know more about this, before I start worrying that something is up.

The other day, when I looked at the moon, and it was looking a little bit like a bowl, it had come up early in the evening, and the sun had just recently set, so you could tell it was lit up on the underside, the sun would still have been shining on that angle.
The moon was situated south, and the sun had just set a couple of hours before that, in the south east.

Just the positioning of the sun, under the moon.

I noticed something about the moon the other night. Couldn't put my finger on it at the time but this could have been why it looked out of sorts to me.... That's all I got

Does this explain why it can move nearly 90 degrees in one day?

It happens every year in the winter months.

I've read some additional info that cherubbaby has on his "Upsidedown Moon" theory, and he makes a very compelling argument backed up by photos. I can't tell you where to find it on here because it is on another site, but I'm sure if somebody wanted more info they could message him and he'd be glad to share it.

Yeah, I noticed the moon looked all weird too, almost as if my copy of Astronomy "Predicted" it's appearance!

www.astronomy.com...

How does this dark magic work? Underpants Gnomes? Undoubtedly the info comes from Aliens. Yep, Aliens.

Actually that link gives just one reason why the orientation looks different.
There are more reasons, and all based around the fact that you are not standing still while looking out at space, but in fact standing on a rotating sphere.
As the hours go by, your orientation in space changes and thus your view of everything out there.

Seriously, this topic comes up so often there should be a sticky thread for reference.

Did it fall over laughing at your question?
Sorry, I had to.
Really I don't see any difference.

The spaceship Moon is on autopilot. However, it is controlled by a very ancient program that is slow to provide corrections to the control mechanisms of the Moon. Not only that, the Moon is a extremely large spaceship, far larger than any we can imagine and the tremendous mass of it does not immediately respond to control corrections. (Slow to turn you might say.) You will see, that this problem happens about once a day during this time of the lunar month, but it usually corrects itself and there is little doubt but what this will turn out safely again tonight as it has for a few million years.
Please, never fear for the safety of the Moon. I have it on good authority that the aliens well aware of this glitch and are talking to Apple at this very moment to install a new OS. Their old, current OS is a pre-Windows version that Gates stole from them (not from Apple) and should be replaced shortly. there is absolutely no need to charge a camera up for taking pics tonight. By the time you read this, the Moon will be as the scientists say over drinks, "Hunky-dory." 'Best you forget about the whole thing.

You have lived 50 years and have not noticed the moon enough in your life to have not noticed this before? Modern man is a bit lost me thinks. It is on most Islamic flags and in a lot of they're symbolism. I am trying not to sound condescending it just surprises me that so many people have not noticed this before. Then again I love moon gazing!
