What's your point? You wish to emphasize your ignorance that the tilt is dependent partly on the orbit angle (time of year) and location on Earth? Done. Yes, that shows the correct phases but it doesn't try to show nor can it, the orientation of those phases as they vary based both on time of year and location on Earth. Always have. Just because you are only noticing this now doesn't change that fact.


...sooo...in other times of the year, or other parts of the world the Moon has always been laying????

I just know the it has never been like that before. In the 70-es, 80-es lived/visited different parts of the world, watched the sky a lot and it was not like this! And lots of people I know on and off GLP says the same.
This is why I updated this thread after a month passed and ask you all to tell/show pics on what you see.
Thank you

If it is clear tonight, I'll take some pics of the Moon. I was looking at the Moon last night through my telescope(3 inch reflector)and it was an amazing image.

the only thing that I have noticed lately, and I'm not even sure if it is normal, but i have noticed that the moon is much higher in the sky, almost straight up,... near the end of march it was much lower in the sky, about half way down. This has happened once before, this year!

My argument is that nothing has changed....

But there is another pattern of the Crescent Moon we are unaware of....

In layman's terms:

The crescent is the part of the moon that is not covered by the Earth's shadow, so get the Sun's light directly.

The change in the crescent's position indicates that the Sun illuminates a different part of the Moon now, the Earth castes its shadow to a different part of the Moon.

I've lived for 44 years - I've never seen the moon as it was this winther...wrong angle. Now we have constant daylight - that's normal ;-), so I won't see the moon again until late autumn.

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.

Edit: I reposted this because since March the laying crescent the "U Moon" is still there.

This entire thread is the equivalent of people getting freaked because they 'discover' that the sky is blue.

I'm not going to waste my breathe. Do what Astronut said.

You won't, though, because it's more fun to rpetend the sky is falling than it is to EDUCATE YOURSELVES IN THE MOST BASIC ASPECTS OF FUCKING ASTRONOMY.

It is said in the Srimad Bhagavatam(Commentary on the Vedanta Sutra's) that the planets float in the ethereal sky do to the composition of each. Considering that for 100 yrs man has been disturbing the 'life blood/air of the planet' in the form of pumping oil/natural gas out of the earth and transforming it into ever conceivable pollutant and various poisons their fertile Frankenstein minds could conceive(just because you 'can' do something, doesn't arbitrarily mean that you should!). It could then be concluded that the earth composition has changed(both above and below) and has moved out of it's specific orbit because of it. There by changing our view of the moon. Hello earth changes!!!!!!! Earth quakes, volcanoes, weather anomalies. It is going to be a wild ride. Already is!

And yes it has been on the fritz for 5 yrs. Just as the sun appears to rise and set to far north(Jacksonville, Fl) of East. I have full sun on the north side of my perfectly east/west oriented house. I have been watching closely for 60 yrs. My prayers and life are guided by both the moon and sun's positions in the astrological sky. But the last 6 months have been especially interesting in the way the crescent behaves before and after each of the full moon and new moon phases. Look for the crescent to be on top of the waning moon, as opposed to the bottom now.

The crescent is the part of the moon that is not lit by the Sun (hence, in its own shadow).

The Earth casts its shadow on the Moon only during a lunar eclipse.

The thread is a fail then since the sky still agrees with our sky charts. In fact, that lunar occultation of Venus from the Philippines is a perfect example. Click on that image and see where it emerges from the limb of the moon? Guess what? Stellarium shows it emerging from the exact same place!
