[quote:Anonymous Coward 27056233:MV8yMDM4NzYyXzM0Mjc3MjIxX0REMDhGQzkw] [quote:Anonymous Coward 12527214:MV8yMDM4NzYyXzM0Mjc2MzIxXzY0NzZGMUMy] [quote:Weasel_Turbine:MV8yMDM4NzYyXzM0Mjc2MTkxXzg0MDZGQzY3] Nothing wrong with the Moon. What you are seeing is called field rotation. It is an APPARENT (not real) rotation that happens to everything in the sky. It is because you are looking at it from a round rotating surface. The Moon's shadow is still left to right. The North pole of the Moon still points to the North. YOU are the one that turned. It is an optical illusion known as field rotation. When the Moon (or anything else in the sky) rises you are looking East and it APPEARS rotated to the left. When high in the sky you are looking South and it is upright. When it sets you are looking West and it APPEARS rotated to the right. How do we know it is not a real rotation? First, YOU turned. When the Moon is just past the highest point in the sky you can see it both ways. Look South and you see the shadow on the left, look West and up and you see the shadow on top. Magic! Second, [b]when we see it setting and appears to be rotated to the right, somebody on the other side of the world sees it rising AT THE SAME TIME and sees it appearing to be rotated to the left![/b] [/quote] you do know that the moon DOES have a rotation right? [/quote] Yes, but its true rotation is a completely separate matter than the apparent rotation known as "field rotation." That's purely a matter of perspective, so unless you're viewing it from a polar aligned perspective, it will appear to "rotate" over the course of the night. http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=B9lnCVPnt4s [/quote]
