Now I don't know the exact time that video was filmed, but from New Orleans on that date, the moon's apparent orientation relative to the horizon
should have been about 83.07 degrees "tilted" from vertical one hour before moonset. A little less so an hour before that at 81.8 degrees. It's a
perfectly normal effect of field rotation and depends on where the moon is in the sky in relation to the sun. You can see for yourself here with a
handy spreadsheet I created for this purpose: www.abovetopsecret.com...
edit on 16-2-2013 by ngchunter because: (no reason given)
Updated version now precesses the coordinates back to J2000.0 standard.
The moon is where it should be; no it's not tilting, no the earth is not tilting, these are normal effects of field rotation and depend on where the
moon is in the sky in relation to the sun.
