CURIOUS***Why is the moon rising in the WEST tonight?
I live in CA and have never seen this before. The sun is setting in the west and the moon is rising in the west. I started watching it 20 minutes ago and it has moved higher into the night sky as the sun is setting. Basically it started on the West horizon and is now moving up and East. Is this normal? I've never seen anything like this...I know there are a lot of amazing astronomers and star gazers on here so someone please educate me, LOL :) Thanks!

It's really odd. I even got binoculars out to make sure it was the moon, LOL :)

yes, i agree, and last night, i took a picture of the moon rising from the West, i used a cannon supershot sd400...it develops immediately...when i looked at the moon, and zoomed in, there is a planet underneath the moon, it looks faint like a white shadow, it's bigger than the moon, and is between the earth and the moon...it is rising underneath the moon 20 degrees or so southeast of the position of the moon....if i knew how to upload the picture, i would do it...

Wait another 2 years, you will see the sun rise in the west and the moon no more. Not that will be a trip, and that is after the 2 suns in 2012

The moon cannot 'rise' in the east. You are seeing the moon in the west simply because you're seeing it later in it's orbit, when it is in fact further west. It still 'rose' in the east.

I didn't *assume* any mystery, I just thought i'd ask here for it in plain and simple terms. To me, it was/is an odd occurrence and I thought i'd get a great answer here. Thanks :)

Re: CURIOUS***Why is the moon rising in the WEST tonight?
At the new moon the moon is between the earth and the sun. Then it lags behind the sun, gradually. This is what you saw. The sun set, and soon afterward the moon will set. The moon will lag further and further behind the sun, meaning that moonset will come further and further after sunset. Then when it is full the earth will be between the moon and the sun. The moon will rise at almost the exact time the sun sets. Then the moon will start to precede the sun, meaning that moonrise will come later and later in the night, until the new moon, and the cycle will begin again.

Re: CURIOUS***Why is the moon rising in the WEST tonight?
For sure it's real. I saw the moon rise in the west too. One afternoon in August a few years ago; when the radio dj said watch the sky at sunset for a beautiful phenomena, I went to the beach at Orient Point (Long Island NY) for a looky. It's one of those long peninsula/odd agle places by the Atlantic where seeing the sunset on the ocean is possible. Others were there too and - WOW - when the sun sank low to meet the blue horizon... a neon moon of a color beyond description rose simultaneous direct to the left (south) of the orange ball and so there were two "suns" side by side at the edge of the world for a moment outside of logical time.
Maybe it was a little scary, ya know. Thankfully some nice knowledgeable locals with telescopes came prepared and passed around cups and champagne; and then it was almost too much fun when two did a demo with a large ball & a smaller ball illustrating the reason for the rare phenomena. To do it yourself let the small (moon) ball make continuous counter=clockwise orbits from all points of the compass around the large (earth) ball (in a pattern of the NASA atom logo). It's then actually possible to understand how the rising moon can seem to reverse its orbital direction and subjective origin. Also - first the shenanigans then the numbers, if you will - look up the most extreme degrees of positions and angles of the sun and moon (azimuth) at sunset or sunrise to notice the rare convergences, for cause and effect predictions.
Anyway, to end such an evening of moon enrapturement early was out of the question. So I took a ferry boat ride to Connecticut and back to keep comfortably watching it on deck with supper and a drink. That night the moon made a rapid passage, and by the time the boat returned It was already gone from the sky. Unforgettable beautiful night.

Uhhh, that's normal dude. The moon's position in the sky at any given time of day is tied to the phase of the moon. The waxing crescent moon (as it is now) is in the west at sunset.

This is elementary school level material.

The moon tonight has risen from the west. In 60 years I have never seen such an event. I do not care how many experienced astonomers argue with me- the moon is not what I have experienced during my lifetime. Also because of the chemtrails the moon appears opaque like looking at her through a veil. Is it the moon who knows?

and i don't suppose that if that were ACTUALLY the case, we would now be swimming with the sharks is any deterrent to your belief that the moon is now rising from the west?

it would have to stop in it's orbit, somehow, then somehow again, start going in the opposite direction. the energies of which would probably tear it to pieces, but still, that is no barrier to your belief, eh?

the problem with you is you don't actually observe the moon/sun, or whatever, isn't it? you don't ACTUALLY know what you are talking about?

you see the moon, in the west, just as the sun sets, a perfectly normal thing at this phase in it's phases, and you put 2 and 2 together and come up with 23445432?

isn't that right?

i suppose i'll be called a shill now, which is funny because i'm probably one of the biggest woos on here, but i know what is bullshit and what isn't, and wasting your time on shit like this is just a crying fucking shame.

It's not rising from the west. You are seeing it "set" in the west, which is a normal occurrence after a new moon.
