    Default The Moon

    Hi All

    The moon has become a hot topic of late so i thought i'd share a couple of pics taken by a friend of mine.

    A sceptic would say instantly that the camera was re-oriented but my friend insists they were taken with the same general level. The first pic on the left was taken without knowledge which i imparted to him later concerning the moon. the second shot on the right was taken with intent as a comparison of the first.

    considering what david icke and credo mutwa say on this subject

    any comments ?

    Other websites convey the idea that the moon of March 19, 2011 is the brightest and closest since 1993. Wrong. On December 12, 2008, Moon was full, and she went that day 10 km closer to Earth. You can check in a few clicks on the site :

    Hi,
    Could you please check your link. I'm getting a timed out message.

    For the last two days I have hunted high 'n' low to gatch a glimpse of the "Giant Moon", but nothing. The moon can not be found anywhere in my location. In fact its pitch black.

    Wow, that looks like the moon has rotated fully 100 degrees counter clockwise at least !!
    I don't see how the Moon could look like this from anywhere on Earth without actually Physically rotating as is now coming to light in the reasearch of Cornell University here http://arxiv.org/abs/1102.0212

    Snippet:
    A recent analysis of a Lunar Laser Ranging (LLR) data record spanning 38.7 yr revealed an anomalous increase of the eccentricity of the lunar orbit amounting to de/dt_meas = (9 +/- 3) 10^-12 yr^-1. The present-day models of the dissipative phenomena occurring in the interiors of both the Earth and the Moon are not able to explain it. We examine several dynamical effects, not modeled in the data analysis, in the framework of long-range modified models of gravity and of the standard Newtonian/Einsteinian paradigm. It turns out that none of them can accommodate de/dt_meas. Many of them do not even induce long-term changes in e; other models do, instead, yield such an effect, but the resulting magnitudes are in disagreement with de/dt_meas. In particular, the general relativistic gravitomagnetic acceleration of the Moon due to the Earth's angular momentum has the right order of magnitude, but the resulting Lense-Thirring secular effect for the eccentricity vanishes. A potentially viable Newtonian candidate would be a trans-Plutonian massive object (Planet X/Nemesis/Tyche) since it, actually, would affect e with a non-vanishing long-term variation.
    End

    We have been telling them the moon looks different for the last couple of years and were sniggerd at

    looking at the pictures, one is obviously bigger than the other.
    but the large image appears to have been flipped on its vertical axis,
    and rotated anti clockwise 45 degrees.

    Hi SKAWF

    The second image i can testify to as i saw it with my binoculars around the same time exactly as i saw it oriented in the sky.

    Attachment 6254Attachment 6255Hi guys...
    I've been taking photos of the moon this last month. I've uploaded them to an album on my profile page.
    Until I saw this thread, I didn't even think to look at the orientation of the moon in my pictures.
    I'm not a professional photographer, but I've got pretty good gear and sometimes (!) I even know how to use it to good effect!
    The first two photos were taken just 4 days apart, March 14th and 18th 2011.
    And the last one was taken 15th Aug 2010.
    The camera was mounted on a tripod and levelled in each photo.
    As you can see. the markings on the moon (seas - I don't know their names) appear at different angles in each picture.
    Is this unusual or normal...? I don't know.
    Perhaps someone with a higher level of education than I can explain how this manifests?
    Come on you astronomers... we need to know :-)

    I believe this is normal as the moon rotates around on the earths orbit you see different parts of the moon... could be wrong though!

    This lunar motion is called libration. It is an oscillating motion of orbiting bodies relative to each other, which includes the motion of the Moon relative to Earth.

    The pictures that you took during various phases appear different because the moon has slightly oscillated during the time between pictures.

    Check out this animated gif on the phenomena.



    Here is the wikipedia article on libration.

    Since hearing that the moon is a hollowed out planetoid that's used to control human behaviour - well, it's just doesn't do it for me anymore.

    The sunlight reflected off the surface of the moon has been "flipped" from yang to yin dominant, this substance is more easily used by occult societies to create things in their own image. The moon or moonlight is not inherently evil, it can be used by anybody to create whatever "reality" they wish.

    Yes indeed, Eric.
    Despite there being only 4 days difference between the first 2 photos I posted above, the apparent angle is quite noticeable.
    I don't pretend to know the big words that scientists like to use when describing orbital paths of planets and satellites, but I'm sure there is an explanation in plain English somewhere that accounts for what I see in my photos.
    There does appear to be more going on than just libration as Ancient showed us in his post.
    I have a friend who is a keen amateur astronomer... I shall put this to him.
    Meanwhile, I feel a need to become acquainted with the laws of planetary motion... lol
    Regards :-)
