Well I happen to walk to work at 5.30 in the morning, and have seen a crescent moon when the sun is out.

astro-nuts.blogspot.com...




en.wikipedia.org...

The yellow bit at the top is the sun, so it is possible, see.

Yes, and this has to do with the topic....what?

So first you are all sure about yourself, then when people try to explain stuff you get an attitude, and then when you are proven completely wrong you sidestep the issue?

No admitting you were wrong, no thanks for explaining it to you?

Not very classy at all.

Wow the persistent iognorance, and where is the rainbow? If there is no rainbow in the pic, then again, it is totally irrelevant to the OP.

I didn't sidestep, if you knew anything you'd know I was disproving your attempt to disprove me, and I succeeded. If the crescent was to the right it would be impossible, but its to the left, so its perfectly possible you ignorant buffoon. Add all my pieces of fact together and you'll realise I'm correct.

What do you mean, I already showed you twice that what you was talking about has nothing to do with the OP´s claims.

And now for the third time,




If the crescent was to the right it would be impossible, but its to the left, so its perfectly possible you ignorant buffoon.


Where does the rainbow the op was talking about come into play?

Yes it does, and right minded individuals will realise this and agree. The rainbow comes from the light being refracted you fool.

Spoken like a true winner.

We don´t need other people. I have shown that what you are thinking is not what the Op is talking about. Are you denying that I have made it completely clear that your claims are false in relation to what the OP wrote?

Here this...what is this? Who was denying this? You are completely unable to grasp the OP, and you are calling me a buffoon and a fool?

Well let´s hope those other people come quickly.

Nope. The point is the angle of the sun that creates that crescent moon can't also create a rainbow. Think about standing in that first photo. The light has to be coming from the far left to form the moon and light on the clouds while a rainbow is formed while the light of the sun should be coming from nearly behind you. It's simply a matter of angles. You can't get a rainbow if the light is coming from the side....

I guess you are not a right minded individual.

That really depends on the Earth's location, in reference to the sun.

Well, in a sense, you're correct. But, again if you are standing in that photo, there could be rainbow, but it would be way off to the right. It could not be where it's located in the photo because of the angle of the light...

Again, depends on the reference point, but of the viewer this time. All I'm saying is its not impossible.

Sigh, it doesn´t depend on the reference point. Watching from the Earth´s surface, a rainbow is always at a 42 degrees radius and centered directly opposite of the sun.

In this area you will never see the moon when it is in that particular phase, if it has that phase it is at another position that is not within that area and can never be.

I don´t know how to explain this any more clear.

Do you understand how rainbows work in regards to the angle of the light source? If so, you could see that the image is a result of image manipulation of some sort...

I understand what you're saying and you're 99 percent right, except, the Earth, Moon and Sun, change places so reference point is a decisive factor.

The fact that they change places is exactly why you never see the moon in that phase next to a rainbow.

But their locations are completely cyclical and predictable and it's impossible to have the arrangement that makes up the 1st photo - That's the OP's point...

The first photo maybe I'll concede that I'm wrong on that but certainly not the others.

Did you read the Op at all?

I admit he wasn´t very clear but he even said that the last two pics are real and possible.

Next time pay a bit more attention to the OP and people trying to explain things to you, it would save a lot of energy and we would have arrived at the same conclusion.

Took me a while to figure it out as well. The other two photos are meant to demonstrate what the moon should look like if near a rainbow, I believe. So they certainly could be legit...
