    Default Is the moon at a different angle?

    Hi there.

    Coming home from work tonight, I noticed the moon. Nothing unusual there but being
    interested in bushcraft and direction techniques I often use the moon to help teach
    my young son to find south.

    Well it all seemed so wrong, it actually points more westerly tonight!!
    I have just been out with my compass and it points no where near south.

    Am I going daft or is this for real.....

    Ammit
    Love. peace and Blessings to you all.

    The same thing has been bothering me for a while now. One night the moon is in the east and sets in the south. Then the other night it's way out in the west and some nights I can't even see it at all !! I do not recall in the past the moon being all over the place. Does any know of a site that can tell where the moon should be on any given evening ?

    Ammit, your right about the moon tonight. I was at an evening wedding outside and the moon was high and due south. By the time I was driving home though it was way low just above the horizon due west.

    Also try stellarium ... it gives the supposed position of sun and other planets as well...

    The earth is spinning as we all know but what some people do not appreciate is that the moon is in orbit around the earth also. So if you went out at the same time each evening and watched the skies, the stars would be in a reasonably stationary position but the moon will appear to have moved significantly relative to those stars.

    As I said in another thread, there are thousands of amateur astronomers watching the moon, planets and stars and any unusual movement would be flagged up almost instantly and be across the internet on message boards within minutes.

    Thanks for the replies, I do appreciate and know that the moon orbits our planet.
    What I refer to is the fact that you can compass direct by the moon, you draw an imaginary
    line from both points on the moons crescent down to the ground, that should more or less
    be south, well, here in the UK at least..

    Last night it did not point to south in pointed westerly!!!

    It is a space station after all, maybe someone accidentally pressed an ancient "ignite drives" button back there that night to test it once every 10.000 years

    Kind of makes me wonder actually, if the moon is brought here does it have a drive?

    ..
    On 17.july 2010 around 22.30- 23.00 local time (GMT+1) me and a friend were outside my house, because of a very special sunset.
    There were some clouds, but the horizon to west was open, and the colours were amazing and strong in deep red and purple, and
    it was like the whole air was saturated with that colour light, so it was like our bodys were glowing. The scenery was a bit magic.
    As the sun went down behind the horizon, the open sky to west, northwest, was a light, bright, and strong turquoise with variations.
    Then the moon appeared, like out of thin air, over a 10 second period. Immediately something struck me as different and strange.
    The moon was half, straight upright, but looked larger, and the surface (reflection) seemed unusual, - and it was directly to the west.
    I pointed it out to my friend by pointing to south and asking: should not the moon be more over there ? (seen from southwest Norway)
    This was something that I immediately felt, and I fast checked the local newspaper the next day to see if anyone commented on this,
    or just the uncommonly colourful and special sunset. Seemed to be only the normal state of things reported there.
    When I find a compass I can measure the moons position (direction, or angle, from here) at the time, and post it here.

    From the Web Wisdom, the answer is: "moon yes has a drive," inside, but i was brought with the help of a asteroid.. " the asteroid then left of course.. perhaps Halley boop . eh oh convenient , that comet is always visiting us.

    I got a compass, and have now measured the angle to were the moon
    was positioned on the 17. july 2010, as mentioned in post #11 above.
    ...
    Place: close to Bergen, Norway.
    Time: Evening 22.30 - 23.00. Timezone GMT+1
    Angle: 250-265 degrees west, moon position, relatively low in the skye.

    Theese facts are and that also my friend can witness.
    Am a bit embarrassed not to know if this was normal, but
    there was something strange about that whole evening.
    On the 21.july here was a clear sky and the moon were in
    the more familiar area of 200-220 degrees south at 01.30 AM.
    ...
    Will try to make a moon-log, and keep an eye on the skye
    from time to time. Maybe more people can do this.
    ...
    Found this comment on the "Hollow Earth" thread, post #14 from Tuza in Australia:
    Quote I don't know if I would be certain of google coordinates any more concerning true north and so on;
    every night I go outside I am amazed where the moon resides from one 24 hour period to the next.
    I think it has shifted a bit but I am not technical minded. Just mho.

    I thought the earth pole shifted by 3 inches, this year, would that put a miss measure on a few things?

    Well I have been watching the moon for years, always had a fasination with it, and it does look different.
    Look at this pic, every time I have looked at the moon it looked like this: http://scrapetv.com/News/News%20Page...3/the-moon.jpg look at the crater almost at the bottom just right of middle...
    Now last night and tonight it looks as it does now. the same crater is middle left....

    Hi all

    I really believe the moon looks different and looks like it is beginning to wane on the top. The usual shades of the moon also look different, I dont know about the rest of the world but if you are in the UK and have the moon visible, brave the cold and take a look.

    Blessings
