[quote:Anonymous Coward 27132643:MV8yMDM4NzYyXzM0Mjk2ODA3X0M0NjY3RjU=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 25463516:MV8yMDM4NzYyXzM0Mjk2NjM0X0I0RkM0ODg2] I noticed it too, the moon, as viewed from Northern California was waning from the top down not from the side. I don't recall ever seeing it like that before. My viewing angle was looking due East and slightly north .move was moving from northeast to southwesterly direction . Perhaps it always does this in late October early nov? I dunno... Time to pull out some OLD encyclopedias that NASA hasn't edited.... [/quote] Field rotation is not dependent on the season. And yes, field rotation was described long before NASA was founded. Here's a reference from 1900: http://adsabs.harvard.edu/full/1900ApJ....11..148C Siderostats and heliostats do not use polar alignment and are therefore subject to field rotation. So are you when you're viewing the moon by eye. This problem is eliminated in a polar aligned telescope and indeed the moon is seen to be waning from the side, not from the top, in such a telescope.

I just walked outside here in SO Calif and the moon is midway 10 oclock and it is getting darker from the TOP!
The MOON NEVER used to get dark from the TOP ever! WTH is goin on?
