Skywatchers: Have you seen the moon today?


Image



No, that wasn't it.


No, what I'm talking about is - did anyone happen to see the moon during the day today? (Wed, 12-05-2012)

Ok this is a little weird - maybe.


I was at work today and at about 0630 this morning CDT US, I noticed a bright moon fairly high to the WSW. Clear night, no clouds anywhere, you get the idea.

Later in the morning at about 0930, I stepped out again and lo and behold, there was the moon again - practically in the same position as it was at 0630 - BUT THREE HOURS LATER.

Now this caught me a little off guard as usually the moon is only out and usually completely clears the sky in as little as 3-4 hours.

But here today it was almost stationary for THREE HOURS.

Orbit perturbation?

Just throwing it out there folks.


:cheers:

I did see the moon this morning.


Which leads me to....The damn thing seems to be jumping all over the sky. Keep in mind i do not follow the moon that much. That said. When it was full a week ago,give or take a week. It was no where near the same place just today. Seemed far to advanced [forward in time placement in sky] I will say then at other times. I do know the earth is at a tilt and has oscillation. But The moons placement strikes me odd at times.

If anyone would like to break it down :flop: Until then I will just think of it as odd.



To much cloud cover at this time for me to see and get a pic.


:cheers:

i saw it this morn at about 10.
it looked bigger than normal.there was a lot of fog in the air,so it was prob magnified abit
i was filming the sun at the time so didnt take any pics
i was hoping the fog was gonna give me a shot the sunspots.when its just right,the fog is a good filter
