The Moon's Crecent is at the Bottom?
Never seen this before in my whole life. Even my neigbours mentioned it. Is this a natural event?

WYF? Can I have a real answer as to why the moon is on its side tonight.

Thanks

A careful observer will certainly notice that over the period of months, the crescent of the Moon does indeed seem to go from being lit on the "bottom" of the Moon to being lit on the side of the Moon. So what is happening to make the Moon look different? It is all a result of the Moon's orbit around the Earth, and the Earth's orbit around the Sun. And exactly when you see the Moon in the shape of a 'U' (lit on the bottom) rather than a backward 'C' (lit on the side) depends on what latitude you are at. But the explanation is the same regardless of when you see it from your location.

We see the Moon in the night sky because it is reflecting light from the Sun. The Moon does not generate any light of its own. So the lit part of the Moon always points toward the Sun. Now as you can see in the diagram, as the Earth travels aroound the Sun, the tilt of the Earth on its axis sometimes points the northern hemisphere toward the Sun and sometimes points the southern hemisphere toward the Sun. This is why we have seasons here on Earth. But this also changes the apparent path of the Moon across the night sky when you are on the Earth looking out at it. Sometimes it travels at an angle toward the horizon and sometimes it travels straight down toward the horizon. When the crescent Moon travels straight down toward the horizon, you will get the 'U' shaped Moon. Many describe this as when the 'horns' of the Moon point upward. This can happen once or twice a year, again depending on the latitude of your location.

 Quoting: nasa

Earth axis tilt has tilted further then 23 degrees, ha,ha,ha!

 Quoting: nasa

LOL -- okay genus.

This would indicate the sunlight reflecting off the Moon would be projected diagonally and lower by the Sun.

Sometimes it travels at an angle toward the horizon and sometimes it travels straight down toward the horizon.
 Quoting: nasa

LOL -- the crescent slices of the moon should always be seen upright, top to bottom, IF THE MOON REFLECTS LIGHT, never at angle because the moon is a sphere (round like a ball) the sphere would always reflect science's theoretic sunshine from the side facing the Sun -- top to bottom, never at angle, because as you know:

Two points will never make an angle.

M = moon

S = sun

When the crescent Moon travels straight down toward the horizon, you will get the 'U' shaped Moon. Many describe this as when the 'horns' of the Moon point upward. This can happen once or twice a year, again depending on the latitude of your location.
 Quoting: nasa

Prediction for NASA -- in about five days the half moon will have mysteriously straighten out and we'll see the half moon phase shine upright, instead of from the bottom.

Re: The Moon's Crecent is at the Bottom?
i noticed the moon tonight was crescent at the bottom like you'd see in the middle east. But i'm in north west europe.

Never seen the moon like that before in this part of the world.

It did the same thing last month. I thought it was weird then, but I did a google search, and apparently, I just never noticed it before.

Yes. it happens a lot. Which side the moon's crescent is on depends on what time of the year it is and whether it's waxing or waning, and whether it precedes the Sun or follows it.

Most people simply don't notice basic astronomical phenomena like this.

This is perectly normal for an early phase moon during the winter.

Look up "wet moon".

Please, folks, learn just a little about real astronomy before showing your ignorance for all to see.

I saw it lit from the bottom about six times in the last 10 months. All from the same location. But, prior... I don't recall ever seeing it like that. (same location, any season). All I know is, it's cool to look at and wonder.
Most of what I've read about it makes sense. Also my eyes and imagination make considerable sense.
