[quote:Anonymous Coward 689067:MV8xMDE3MTg3XzE2MDkxMjU1XzIzQjkxODY0] [quote:emerald_glow] In the meantime I found a possible explanation on an unexpected place: http://planetariumweb.madison.k12.wi.us/mooncal/crescent-tilt/Crescent It sounds quite credible, except I have never heard this before (I thought I coined the word "U-moon" myself a week ago or so). And never seen a U moon before February 2010, even if according to the above explanation half of every year we see it this way. What the heck is going on???? that does explain it ! Does it??? Does it explain why nobody ever seen it that way before???? [/quote] At this time of the year (around the vernal equinox), a waxing crescent Moon will always look like that (a U-shape) as it approaches the western horizon from a mid-latitude northern hemisphere site. The angle of the ecliptic to the horizon is primarily responsible for the effect. [/quote]
This is a thread from 2010, I renewed it because now there is evidence...
For 2 months the position of the shadow of the Earth on the Moon is different than before. The sliver is on the bottom, and forms a wide letter "U" instead of the usual position.

There are many strange pics on the Moon on Spaceweather.com. More often than not, you see much more on the pics, that the written explanation. This time the Moon is not a crescent at all on the pic.
