Title: The Moon
Post by: Lori on August 15, 2011, 03:54:24 AM
OK Guys,

I know we've talked about this before.  This is one of those times again.  Its been almost a week and the moon remains full.  I went out this morning with binoculars in hand and looked at the moon.   Its still perfectly full.  No sign of any darkening. Not even a sliver.   August 13 was our full moon.  We actually however looked like we had a full moon on Thursday of last week.   Today is the 15th.

I'm going to sticky this so we all can Post our thoughts.

Hey Lori, Ya I seen it out this morning too and though it was a tad off too.  Going to check the positions of all the planets this week and will also check the moon to see if it is where it is suppose to be also. I wanted to check Saturn before it is no longer viewable in the evening.

Concur.  The moon has not been full here as it has been 3/4 to full for the same time frame you are reporting.  However, I have noticed that the Earth is starting to wobble again.  The moon has been setting in the southern hemisphere and is now moving progressively north in the direction of the equator.  The Sun, likewise, has been setting in the northern hemisphere and is moving progressively south.  I am no astrological brainiac like some of you are but I think the northern hemisphere has been tilted closer to the sun, hence, this ungodly heat wave we have all endured.  With the Earth now moving in the opposite direction, i.e. the northern hemisphere being tilted further from the sun, I would hypothesize that we are going to be seeing some very unseasonably cool temperatures in the northern hemisphere. Yes, I know... astronomy for dummies...  Are we on the brink of the blending of the seasons?  How can we be the only ones on the planet that are noticing this??????????????????

Lori,
Last night I noticed the full moon, high in the southern sky. Well nearly full, just a tad under.
The deal is, the night before I noticed it had waned more than that.
some kind of wobble...

Many times I've seen what I thought was a full moon a day or two before and after the actual full moon.  What I'd like to know is why at the same time of night the moon could be in totally different parts of the sky, even on consecutive days.

Sorry if I state the obvious at times but here goes.

I live in Myrtle Beach S.C. so all time will be EST that I list.

Last week I noticed that I could see the Moon at 630PM no big deal I have seen this before the Moon while the Sun is still up, I never paid attention to the time before but it was 2 to 2 1/2 hrs till sunset.

Today I noticed that I could still see the Moon at 930 AM 3 hrs after sunrise?

Is it normal to see the Moon for a 15 hour time period?

August 11~12, 2011 at Myrtle Beach, SC:  moon's altitude was positive from 17:50 to 04:20,  or 10 hours 30 minutes, then negative from 04:20 to 18:10, or 14 hours zero minutes,  according to http://www.usno.navy.mil/USNO/astronomical-applications/data-services/alt-az-us (http://www.usno.navy.mil/USNO/astronomical-applications/data-services/alt-az-us) .  (Data is given at ten-minute intervals, so durations are +/- 10 minutes)

If the Moon can be "down" for 14 hours at some stage in it's cycle, then I suppose that it could also be "up" for 14 hours at other stages.  But it would be a good idea to check that site for the specific days and times in question.  Please post a message if your observations do not match the Navy's data.

Just like old times. I looked at the moon in the wee hours of morning, last nite. It was mostly correct on parameters, except the small problem of being 20 to 25 degrees too high, in the night sky. This problem has been noted before.   ed

During our last full moon phase in mid July I noticed the moon tilted 90 degrees down to the left. To see the moons normal expression I had to cock my head sideways. Did anyone happen to notice this phenomenon ? I have not noticed this anomaly in the August cycle.

I also noticed that the moon's face is "looking in the wrong direction". Wonder if that is because of the earth's tilt....or if the moon has moved...or both? Also seems to be almost directly overhead, which doesn't seem right. However, this is just personal observation - I haven't measure anything and wouldn't know how.

Jim,

If I'm reading this chart correct the Moon should have set sometime between 9 and 910 today?

09:00        1.6       277.3       0.87
09:10       -0.8       278.7       0.87

At 930 it still had not gone down behind the tree line here.

The moon should be rising about 9pm and setting about 9:30am. From northern Ohio, it should never rise above 54.1 degrees above the horizon. When I looked, it was at least 75 degrees above.  It was in the area of azimuth it should have been, but the altitude was way off.    ed

So the Moon is in a different position - have the position of eclipses changed? Because they're pretty big events, easy to plot (http://www.exploratorium.edu/eclipse/future.html), hard to miss.

Moon anomalies reported in the zetatalk newsletter for September 11, 2011 (released early) at http://www.zetatalk.com/newsletr/issue258.htm (http://www.zetatalk.com/newsletr/issue258.htm) :

[start extract]
Swift Moon

    The Earth wobble caused by the near presence of Planet X has been noted by the general public in many ways. The weather has suddenly changed, and changed direction, satellite maps showing this change in direction of the prevailing winds, as noted on July 31, 2011 in Issue 252 of this newsletter when the satellite views showed the wind from the northwest, then suddenly switching to be from the southwest. The weatherman and NOAA are silent about this switching about. The figure 8 of the Earth wobble also puts the Sun in the wrong position, most notably at sunrise and sunset. NASA is silent about this most obvious piece of evidence that Planet X is in the vicinity.
...
The violent pushing back and forth, the Earth wobble, also produced high tides which have no official explanation.
...
But the wobble effect most noticed and hardest for the establishment to explain is the sudden movement of the Moon, which has recently come of note as the wobble has recently become more violent. The GodLikeProduction message board, normally awash with paid disinformation agents who ridicule any mention of the Earth changes or the ZetaTalk website, recently hosted a discussion which could not be silenced. The Moon was moving swiftly across the skies.
[from readers:]
    Why and how the hell is the moon moving so fast? A couple of minutes ago it was up in the sky and now it disappeared in the horizon. It was incredibly fast! I saw it in the sky at night and a couple of minutes later, less than 10 minutes, it was already disappearing in the horizon. It was moving extremely fast. I've never seen something like this happening. [and from another] I have also noticed that it moves really fast lately. Noticed this probably a couple / few months ago. [and from another] Even the dark spots on the moon rotate. I was leaning on a wall the other night, not moving. Seen the moon peeking out behind a pole, within minutes, I watched it move into clear sight and 1/8th way across the sky. [and from another] Was out about 9 pm and the moon was moving fast. About an hour earlier I was picking apples and the moon was high, yet not anywhere near the zenith, and then I approached a minute later to get a better view it had become hidden behind the trees in just a moment of time. The Sun has been moving strangely as well, taking a low orbit and traveling closer to the horizon line as well as setting further North than normal. [and from another] I've noticed that the Sun is moving differently too, but I wasn't sure about it. [and from another] A few weeks ago I was at a friends house sitting in the backyard with him. I remember seeing the moon between two big trees and slightly under a telephone pole wire that was in his backyard. The moon was a few feet below this telephone pole cable/wire. Not even 5 minutes had passed by and the moon was above the telephone cable/wire from my viewpoint, and kept rising higher and higher at a very fast rate. I have never ever seen the moon move this fast in my life.

This was a sign mentioned in the Kolbrin, the Egyptian text recording previous passages of Planet X, aka Nibiru. Noah took this as his sign to prepare his arc.

The moon was beautiful last night and the night before.  Not that I'm an expert (for sure!) or anything, but it sure looks the same to me as it has for many, many years.  So I'm a bit confused as well, with these statements that it has changed.

The moon is back to rising in the northeast again after rising in the southeast for the longest.  Funny thing though, on my way to work this morning it was still almost full and still in the northern hemisphere a full 12 hours after I observed it on my way home from work the evening before.  How is this even possible?  I am in Kansas City, by the way...

Evidently it's not a permanent shift, but rather like a swing away and back over some time period.

The orbit of the Moon around the Earth, and the revolution of the Earth (around its' own axis), are not synchronized, so sometimes the Moon will be above a certain spot on the surface of the Earth during daytime (at that spot), and sometimes the Moon will be above that spot during the night (at that spot) -- and sometimes at sunrise and sometimes at sunset also.  The time interval during which the Moon is in a position to be visible from any specified spot on Earth varies slightly with the phase of the moon.

The first part, the swing away and back, is not normal.

The second part, seeing the moon during daytime, is normal.  A few more words about it:  the Moon orbits around the Earth once every 29.32 days, while the Earth spins underneath it once a day.  The times of moonrise and moonset advance approximately 50 minutes every day (24x60/29.32).

The position (azimuth) of moonrise and moonset vary regularly with the moon's phase.  See [urlhttp://curious.astro.cornell.edu/question.php?number=642][/url].  But the present range of variation is not normal.  To check the "correct" position of the Sun or the Moon at any time and place, access http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/AltAz.php (http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/AltAz.php)

Hey guys.  On my way home from work this evening, around 6:30 to 7:00 pm, or 1830 to 1900 for those militarily inclined, I noticed the moon rising back from the northeast again as it has been previously rising from the southeast here in KC.  OK, not that unusual considering what has been happening of late.  However, it is now 2030 and I just went to take out the trash and look at the moon and it appears to be moving almost due south from where it rose and I have never seen that before.  Normally it would move from east to west in some fashion or other but tonight it has hardly moved west at all and appears to be moving south.  Any comments or explanations from the astrophysicists in the hall?

I've noticed it has tilted counter clockwise about 20 degrees. I had posted awhile back an old Ansel Adams photo of the moon. There was no tilt at that point using the photo as reference, but there is a tilt to the surface features now.

Post by: errrv on October 26, 2011, 03:47:54 PM
I've been playing with an idea in my head for the last couple of days. "IF" the moon were struck by an object or objects, creating a mass ejecta field, this could possibly create a debris ring around the earth. Maybe this could either speed up or decrease the moon's orbit? The debris field could in-turn, possibly cause a solar eclipse... Dark period on eath for days. It could also decrease the overall sunlight available to the equatorial belt by 30%, and in-turn decrease reflective moonlight by 30%.

Just seems like a lot of coincidences... Especially with YU55 coming in to within 100,000 miles of the moon. Does it have accompanying smaller asteroids? If so, where will their paths take them?

Tonight my son (adult) came in and said we need to go see something weird.
So three of us went out to see.
The moon was near the horizon in approximately the SSW.
It was a waning crescent but we could easily see the whole moon.
I observed the crescent growing and waning as I looked at it.
From the time we started looking at the moon until it completely disappeared from view was only a few minutes.

According to the US Naval Obsrvatory table of moon rises and sets,
our view of the moon should have been rising at 0701 AM
and setting at 1736.
We observed the moon dropping down near the horizon It was after 9 PM.

I took me a while to figure that out.  The cause would be extra tilt of the Earth.  Try this:  Hold one fist between your head and a light bulb, and move your fist slightly to the left or right until you see one side of the fist illuminated directly and the other side in shadow.  The light bulb represents the Sun, your fist represents the Moon, and your head represents the Earth.  The part of your fist that is illuminated directly will be a vertical slice.  Now tilt your head to the left or the right, and observe how the illuminated slice of your fist appears to be, from the point of your eyes (which don't know that they have been tilted) to move towards the bottom or top of the view.

EDIT (still figuring, evidently.  Subconscious mind must be slow today.)
To visualize that effect more easily, consider that the great circle of your head that passes thru the two eyes represents the equator of the Earth.  Then, as you tilt your head, notice how the angle between that line and the illuminated slice of your fist changes.

I just realized that the same effect can be obtained by lowering (or raising) your fist while the head stays fixed.  The illuminated slice of fist will move to the top (or bottom).  That corresponds to displacement of the Moon, of course.

I am surprised that this anomaly was not reported in this week's reports from zetatalk.  Perhaps none of their readers noticed or could not capture a photo.  If it happens again, please report it to the top-most "Ning Address" link at http://www.zetatalk.com/index/ningarch.htm (http://www.zetatalk.com/index/ningarch.htm) .

At approximately 6:45 p.m. EST on December 31, 2011, at Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, the half moon was seen by a party of four adults and one boy, myself included, to be high in the Western sky, with the straight section of the perimeter absolutely horizontal and the visible portion downwards.

The Internet site http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/AltAz.php (http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/AltAz.php) calculates the Sun or Moon altitude, azimuth, and fraction Moon visible for any date, time, and place.

For December 31, 2011, 6:50 p.m. EST at Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, that service gives time 18:50, Altitude 59.4, Azimuth 204.7, and fraction visible 0.48.

Photos of normal Moon view for every day of a specified year and month are provided at http://stardate.org/nightsky/moon (http://stardate.org/nightsky/moon). 

On that same date, the straight section of the half moon should have been vertical, as shown below.  Also, the Moon was definitely more than 24 degrees west of South.

The moon photos are excellent. One can see the many different orientations that the moon has.
The problem is that, to my understanding, some telescope flip the image and there is no way
to tell which image has that quality. The distinguishing features really stand out and they change
position a great deal.

Thanks for sending me here, Jimfarmer.  I am an artist, too, and many years ago I painted a picture of the moon's face with a fair amount of accuracy if I may say so myself. But when I view your chart:

 NormalMoonPhasesJanuary2012.bmp (568.53 kB, 420x462 - viewed 96 times.)

I could not find one, even similar phase, that looked like the phase of the moon that I viewed on January 12th and 13th of 2012.  For at least those 2 days the moon appeared to be in either some sort of lunar eclipse OR way-y-y out of kilter, with a hat on top.  It actually appeared to be flat on top!  I got my binoculars out and the moon did not look at all like it had a face Friday night....there were a lot of bright points located in places that I have never seen lit up like that as well.  I missed it last night, but, I wonder if those small shifts in our axis due to the combined and very large earthquakes of the past 2 years (or more) could have caused us to become permanently changed.

I have kept up with the PX stuff as best I can, but is it possible that, INSTEAD We have experience an electro-magnetic shift, or even a minor polar shift that could have caused the earth to lean over even more?  If so, Who would inform us of such an event...I do not think that we would automatically FEEL the shift if it is minor....but that moon does not look minor to me.   Love always! =o)

Title: Re: The Moon
Post by: Jimfarmer on January 15, 2012, 06:03:13 PM
Regarding the apparent tilt of the Moon's illuminated portion:

There are two possible causes.  1) tilt of the Earth,  and 2) displacement of the Moon further above or below the ecliptic beyond its' normal range of movement.

Note that a tilt of the Moon's orbit would put it too far above the ecliptic during part of the time, too far below during part of the time, and at normal position twice in one revolution.

Tilt of the Earth would not change the portion of the Moon that is illuminated by the Sun.  In that case, the illuminated part would appear normal;  only the orientation of it would appear to be rotated.

Shifting of the Moon's position further away from its' normal distance from the ecliptic would change slightly the portion illuminated, so that is the clue to determining which cause is in operation.

However,  that same effect could be caused by a tilting of the Moon's axis of rotation, rather than a displacement.  The way to distinguish between those two possibilities is to compare the Moon's actual azimuth and altitude to the values given by the US Naval Observatory at http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/AltAz.php (http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/AltAz.php).  (Be careful with your measurements; do not trust a compass.)

Two or  three of the possible causes could be operating, of course, at any time of the day and at any phase of the Moon's orbit, and they will change from day to day or even from hour to hour.

Zetatalk has several articles about Moon anomalies.  Here are links to two good ones.

Well, I don't think so.  Those cases don't seem to fit the actual situation, and Zetatalk does not say anything about that.

Not any government agency, nor any mainstream media, nor any astronomer (for fear of reprisal).  The cover-up is strenuous and pervasive.  Many assassinations have happened.

This article isn't weird.  I Haven't read Velokovsky in about 40 years, but I recall something he alluded to about the moon having come here from some other place according to his interviews with native people.  Most people assume and I think that in the end, Velokovsky did too, that it was Venus that the tribes were talking about.  The moon, even back then was a touchy subject when it came to being a traveler.

Also, in the Sitchin works, the Annunaki that created mankind as slaves all retreated to a HAVEN to observe the flood when it came.  Do you suppose they all had individual space ships, or platforms upon which to safely watch us drown?  Or....would it be more likely that it was the moon base they were IN.

We also have evidence today, if only the specialists and scientists will REALLY test out the evidence and accept what they find as truth....in ancient buildings around the world, there is evidence of an extremely high technology that utilized STONE building...something that we really aren't equipt to DO today...I think it has been said that the stone work looks as if it has been melted and molded into huge blocks to create the structures instead of having them MOVED around over the surface of the earth.  We happen to use metal to create our space crafts on earth.  WHAT IF...someone else happens to use ROCK and STONE to make space ships....?

I recently skimmed an article about one of the near miss astroids or comets behaving as if it were directed by intelligence...Who said rock isn't a better way to make a spaceship?

And...to top it all off, For more that 30 years, I have been telling everyone that I am not worried about when I die, because I am just a dream of my true self....who is asleep in the moon....I said it as a sort of joke, but a part of me really believes this aspect of myself...by the way, Perhaps there are computers beneath earths oceans, too.

Here is another cause of anomalies in the appearance of the Moon:

" That the Gibbous appearance is blunted, shorted, is an illusion as more than the light from the Sun is cast on the Moon. Planet X is coming from slightly beneath the Sun's Ecliptic, thus shines upward against the exposed Moon surface, as though dual spotlights from different locations were illuminating that portion of the Moon exposed.  "

Yowbarb Note: Full Moon the 23rd.
...

SOLSTICE FULL MOON:  This weekend's full Moon is a "supermoon," as much as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full Moons of 2013. Even on Friday night, 36 hours before maximum illumination, the Moon already looked super David Hoffmann took the picture on June 21st from Ashland, Oregon. "The Moon will not be as close to Earth again until August 2014," he says.

The scientific term for the phenomenon is "perigee moon." Full Moons vary in size because of the oval shape of the Moon's orbit. The Moon follows an elliptical path around Earth with one side ("perigee") about 50,000 km closer than the other ("apogee"). Full Moons that occur on the perigee side of the Moon's orbit seem extra big and bright.

On June 23rd, the Moon becomes full at 11:34 UT, only 23 minutes after it reaches perigee. This near-perfect coincidence makes the Moon "super."
It's true that a perigee full Moon brings with it extra-high "perigean tides," but according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration this is nothing to worry about. In most places, lunar gravity at perigee pulls tide waters only a few centimeters (an inch or so) higher than usual. Local geography can amplify the effect to about 15 centimeters (six inches)--not exactly a great flood.

In other words, don't worry. Just enjoy the super moonlight."

Blue Moon from dusk until dawn night of August 20, 2013

Photo credit: different2une

Yes, it’ll be a Blue Moon that lights up the night sky on August 20-21 from dusk till dawn! But it won’t be a Blue Moon by the most popular definition of the term – the second of two full moons to occur in the same calendar month. Nor is the moon likely to be blue in color, as that’s caused by exceedingly rare atmospheric conditions.

Rather, the August 2013 full moon will present the third of four full moons to fall in the same season. A season is defined as the period of time in between a solstice and an equinox – or vice versa. This full moon is the third of four full moons to take place in between the June 2013 solstice and the September 2013 equinox. That makes the August 2013 full moon a Blue Moon!

The moon turns full on August 21, at 1:45 Universal Time. Although the full moon happens at the same moment worldwide, the clock reads differently by time zone. The moon turns full in the United States on Tuesday, August 20, at 9:45 p.m. EDT, 8:45 p.m. CDT, 7:45 p.m MDT or 6:45 p.m. PDT. Astronomically speaking, the moon is full when it’s most directly opposite the sun for the month.

Many of you may not be familiar with the definition of Blue Moon as the third of four full moons in one season. But this definition actually preceded the more modern definition of a Blue Moon as being the second of two full moons to occur in one calendar month.

How often do we have a seasonal Blue Moon?

In both instances, the Blue Moon is a calendar oddity caused by the 19-year Metonic cycle. There are 235 full moons in 19 calendar years, but only 228 calendar months (or 76 three-month seasons). Therefore, it’s inevitable that 7 out of 19 years will feature two full moons in one calendar month. And it’s also inevitable that 7 out of 19 years will have four full moons in one season.

Celebrate the August 2013 Blue Moon – the third of four full moons to take place in between the June solstice and the September equinox!

HARVEST MOON TONIGHT:  Tonight's full Moon is the "Harvest Moon," the full Moon closest to the autumnal equinox. Look for it rising in the east at sunset. Swollen by the Moon illusion and reddened by the effect of low-hanging clouds, the rising Harvest moon is often likened to a "Great Pumpkin."

MOONLIT AURORAS: 
A stream of solar wind is blowing past Earth, putting pressure on our planet's magnetic field. The result has been a steady display of auroras around the Arctic Circle visible even through bright Harvest moonlight

"The clouds parted to reveal the Harvest Moon--and the auroras were there, too," says photographer Yuichi Takasaka, who sends the picture from the Mackenzie River near Fort Providence in the Northwest Territories of Canada.

Keeping a relible eye on the Moon is an awesome way to validate the Earth-Wobble.  Maybe it is because we just moved here, or maybe we are just that lucky, but the Moon passes through one of our living room windows perfectly, once a month.  So far, it is right on track...  Waiting for it to deviate...

FAINT ECLIPSE OF THE HUNTER'S MOON: 
According to folklore tonight's full Moon is the Hunter's Moon. It gets its name from Native American hunters who once tracked and killed their prey by autumn moonlight, stockpiling food for the winter ahead. This year's Hunter's Moon is special because it will pass through the outskirts of Earth's shadow. The faint lunar eclipse will be visible between 23:30 UT (Oct. 18) and 00:10 UT (Oct. 19) mainly from Africa, Europe and eastern parts of Asia.

http://www.spaceweather.com/  Photo Apogee's Eve Moon

SMALLEST FULL MOON OF THE YEAR:
Can you see the difference? Tonight's full Moon is the smallest full Moon of the year--an "apogee moon," as much as 14% smaller and 30% dimmer than other full Moons of 2014. Such a reduced full Moon still produces a lot of light, as shown in this photo taken on Apogee's Eve (Jan. 14) by Neil Winston of Lusby, Maryland.

"Fog rolled in as the temperature dropped after some rainfall," says Winston. "The bright moon cast distinct rays of light through gaps in the trees."

Full Moons vary in size and brightness because of the oval shape of the Moon's orbit. The Moon follows an elliptical path around Earth with one side ("apogee") about 50,000 km farther than the other ("perigee"). Big full Moons on the perigee side of the Moon's orbit are sometimes called "Supermoons." That would make tonight's full Moon an "anti-Supermoon"--or perhaps, "kryptonite."

Step outside after sunset and take a look.

We are down to the last few minutes of a partial lunar eclipse of the sun. Just found out about it.

http://spaceweather.com/

LUNAR TRANSIT OF THE SUN, UNDERWAY NOW:

Today, Jan. 30th, the Moon will eclipse the sun for almost 2.5 hours. You have to be in space to see it. This extreme UV image from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) shows the "lunar transit" underway now.

Before the eclipse is over at 1556 UTC (10:56 EST), as much as 90% of the sun will be covered. SDO is solar powered, so mission controllers have charged the spacecraft's batteries to endure the blackout. Stay tuned for more images!

http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2014/27mar_tetrad/    A Tetrad of Lunar Eclipses

VIDEO on page

March 27, 2014:  For people in the United States, an extraordinary series of lunar eclipses is about to begin.

The action starts on April 15th when the full Moon passes through the amber shadow of Earth, producing a midnight eclipse visible across North America. So begins a lunar eclipse tetrad—a series of 4 consecutive total eclipses occurring at approximately six month intervals.  The total eclipse of April 15, 2014, will be followed by another on Oct. 8, 2014, and another on April 4, 2015, and another on Sept. 28 2015.

"The most unique thing about the 2014-2015 tetrad is that all of them are visible for all or parts of the USA," says longtime NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak.

On average, lunar eclipses occur about twice a year, but not all of them are total.  There are three types:

A penumbral eclipse is when the Moon passes through the pale outskirts of Earth’s shadow.  It’s so subtle, sky watchers often don’t notice an eclipse is underway. 

A partial eclipse is more dramatic.  The Moon dips into the core of Earth’s shadow, but not all the way, so only a fraction of Moon is darkened.

A total eclipse, when the entire Moon is shadowed, is best of all.  The face of the Moon turns sunset-red for up to an hour or more as the eclipse slowly unfolds.

Usually, lunar eclipses come in no particular order. A partial can be followed by a total, followed by a penumbral, and so on.  Anything goes. Occasionally, though, the sequence is more orderly. When four consecutive lunar eclipses are all total, the series is called a tetrad.

http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/OH/OHfigures/OH2014-Fig01.pdf

"During the 21st century, there are 8 sets of tetrads, so I would describe tetrads as a frequent occurrence in the current pattern of lunar eclipses," says Espenak. "But this has not always been the case. During the three hundred year interval from 1600 to 1900, for instance, there were no tetrads at all."

The April 15th eclipse begins at 2 AM Eastern time when the edge of the Moon first enters the amber core of Earth’s shadow.  Totality occurs during a 78 minute interval beginning around 3 o’clock in the morning on the east coast, midnight on the west coast.  Weather permitting, the red Moon will be easy to see across the entirety of North America.

Why red?

A quick trip to the Moon provides the answer: Imagine yourself standing on a dusty lunar plain looking up at the sky. Overhead hangs Earth, nightside down, completely hiding the sun behind it. The eclipse is underway.

You might expect Earth seen in this way to be utterly dark, but it's not. The rim of the planet is on fire! As you scan your eye around Earth's circumference, you're seeing every sunrise and every sunset in the world, all of them, all at once. This incredible light beams into the heart of Earth's shadow, filling it with a coppery glow and transforming the Moon into a great red orb.

Mark your calendar for April 15th and let the tetrad begin.

THE BIGGEST FULL MOON IN ALMOST 70 YEARS: On Monday night, Nov. 14th, there's going to be a full Moon--the biggest and brightest in almost 70 years.  Members of the press are calling it a "supermoon."  The scientific term is "perigee Moon." These terms mean the same thing: The Moon is going to be as much as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than lesser moons we have seen in the past.

"The last time we had such a close full Moon was January 26, 1948," says Geoff Chester of the US Naval Observatory, "and it won't happen again until November 25, 2034."

Full moons vary in size because the Moon's orbit is not a circle, it's an ellipse. One side of the Moon's orbit (perigee) is 50,000 km closer to Earth than the other side (apogee): diagram. This Monday's Moon becomes full about 2 hours away from perigee, a coincidence that makes it remarkable.

But will we be able to tell the difference ... just by looking?  A 30% difference in brightness can easily be masked by clouds or the competing glare of urban lights.  Also, there are no rulers floating in the sky to measure lunar diameters. Hanging high overhead with no reference points to provide a sense of scale, one full Moon looks much like any other.

"I think that the hype over the term 'supermoon' is a bit overblown," says Chester.  "In my book every full Moon has something to offer!"

To get the most out of Monday's apparition, Chester makes this recommendation: "Try to catch the Moon just as it is rising."  A perigee Moon magnified by the Moon Illusion could look super, indeed.

Why this year's Harvest Moon will be unique

(http://en.es-static.us/upl/2016/09/moon-9-8-2014-Susan-Gies-Jensen-sq.jpg)

The Harvest Moon is the first full moon that is closest to the autumnal equinox, but this year's moon will be a little later than usual.

This 2017 Harvest Moon arrives on Thursday, October 5. Usually, the Harvest Moon occurs in September, but this year, the October full moon arrived closer to the fall equinox. So, it takes home the Harvest Moon title.

Technically, the moon will be 100 percent full at 2:40 p.m. EST which is still daylight for us, but the moon will still look fairly full after sunset.

One thing that's unique about the Harvest Moon is the timing of moonrise - when the moon rises above the horizon - after the full moon.

During a regular month, the moon normally rises about 50 minutes later each day. But after a Harvest Moon, the moon rises only 30-35 minutes later each day.

To the naked eye, that lower difference in the moonrise timing will make it seem like we'll have a full moon night.

The Harvest Moon isn't any bigger or brighter than your normal full moon.

Like any other full moon, it does appear to have an orange tint in some cases as it rises along the horizon.

When you look towards the horizon, you are looking through a greater thickness of the earth's atmosphere, compared to when you look up at the sky.

That thicker atmosphere scatters blue light very efficiently, but it lets our eyes see more red. That's why the moon looks more orange.

NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS: THE FLAME OF OUR HEARTS
DECEMBER 14, 2017/ Sarah Faith Gottesdiener

MICRO MOON IN SAGITTARIUS
DECEMBER 17, 2017
10:30 PM PST
This new moon lies just before the winter solstice. This is the darkest week in the Northern Hemisphere—in just five days it will be winter solstice, and the sun will move into Capricorn.

The new moon falls on a Sunday, the day ruled by the sun, and it is in Sagittarius. The sun is also in Sagittarius. This is a great time to dream about all the places you’ll go—literally, philosophically, and magically.

What you dream about, what you know you want, and what you wish for, already exists inside of you. With spell work and ritual, we create symbols to help energy to spring forth—for the universe to pick up and run with. We alchemize the internal with the external via energy, intention, and spirit.

At this time, begin to begin. Don’t just believe it, know it. Speak your truth. Bring forth what is already within you. Watch it take shape symbolically in front of you, signal to the universe, to the present, and the future. Show yourself you are ready. Invite the universe in to co-create with you.

Below are some ways to honor this new moon in Sagittarius, the last new moon of the year.

COUNT THE MIRACLES

The year has been a rough one for the collective, but through the darkness there were victories of all shapes and sizes. This new moon, on the fifth night of Hannukah, five days before solstice and the Yule, we can focus on the lights in the dark. We can remember the miracles. We can count all the miracles we can behold.

Gather with a friend or group of friends. Light candles, eat comforting food together, and talk about all the miracles that happened this year. Miracles that got you through the dark. Talk about what miracles you excited about receiving in the coming months and in the coming year. Ask your friend or friends to also imagine these miracles vividly as you speak them, and in turn you will honor theirs with sending their dreams positive energy and affirmation.

If you are feeling solitary, simply pour yourself a cup of tea, get cozy, and write down all the miracles that have occurred for you this year, in your life. Sometimes, even breathing is a miracle. Staying present is a miracle. Let the miracles unfurl and expand in your mind, like a stallion’s breath curling upwards through the cold night air as they run into the cosmos.

Here is the classic work, that started the disclosure movement about what was REALLY happening on the Moon:

Somebody Else Is On The Moon

https://www.amazon.com/Somebody-Else-Moon-George-Leonard/dp/1522838678

Even though the images featured in the book are of a relatively poor quality and small size, they display some incredible features of original massive prints belonging to NASA.

To back his claims up, Leonard even published the identifying code numbers belonging to the original images in his work, however, this was still not enough to say for certain whether or not the images are real, and the poor quality of the images makes it even harder to believe.

However, what is perhaps even more interesting than the images and their respective identification codes are the statements made by Leonard and his verified NASA credentials.

Leonard was yet another NASA employee who had spoken out about what was found on the moon, which is seen in some of the images taken during the Apollo missions. In his book, Leonard argues that NASA has known about extraterrestrial activity on the moon and have ever since, attempted to hide the information from the general public. Leonard wasn’t the only one to make such claims.

“Read the books, read the lore, start to understand what has really been going on, because there is no doubt that we are being visited. . . . The universe that we live in is much more wondrous, exciting, complex and far-reaching than we were ever able to know up to this point in time. . . . [Mankind has long wondered if we’re] alone in the universe. [But] only in our period do we really have evidence. No, we’re not alone.”  – Dr. Edgar Mitchell, ScD., former NASA astronaut and the 6th man to walk on the moon.

In 1979 Maurice Chatelain, former chief of NASA Communications Systems confirmed that Armstrong had indeed reported seeing two UFOs on the rim of a crater. “The encounter was common knowledge in NASA,” he revealed, “but nobody has talked about until now.”

Here is a VERY interesting account by Ingo Swan of how Remote Viewing was developed at the Stanford Research Institute and how some “ultra secret” agency engaged his services to explore the structures and aliens that were present on the moon (highly recommend).

Also I actually worked at SRI during the early to mid 1970’s when this work was taking place (but had no knowledge of what was going on in another part of the institute at the time).

The previous work “Someone else is on the Moon” takes a prominent part of the story that Ingo tells in his book “Penetration” ..

Penetration: The Question of Extraterrestrial and Human Telepathy

https://www.amazon.com/Penetration-Question-Extraterrestrial-Human-Telepathy/dp/0966767403

In "Penetration," Ingo Swann, renowned psi researcher, reveals long-held secrets about a covert U.S. government "remote viewing" agency, which later was made famous by the book and movie, "The Men Who Stare At Goats."

This agency was so secret that it had no paper trail, and hence no written secrecy agreements (only verbal ones). Once Swann's agreement expired, he was free to tell of meetings in underground bunkers near Washington, D.C., and of being taken to a remote location near the Arctic Circle, where he witnessed the arrival of a huge UFO over the surface of an Alaskan lake.

This book discusses undeveloped human telepathy, and contrasts it with the probable existence of fully developed alien telepathy, which may have many different forms.

Swann also explores the fact that we officially know far more than we're admitting about the Moon, which sometimes exhibits unusual features.

Thanks so much for the copies of these books, and also for the documentary link!  I have no doubt that NASA is indeed aware of one or more civilizations on the moon - If Bruce was able to witness what he did with a 4 mm telescope lense, think how much more NASA has learned with all of its equipment that they aren't telling.

New Moon is on Nov 07, 2018

Yowbarb Note: This is not new news, article is from 2 yrs ago, but here it is anyway, large quakes more likely during the full moon and the new moon.

http://time.com/4489824/full-moon-earthquakes/

Large earthquakes are more likely to occur when there is a full or new moon because of the gravitational pull on tides, a new study suggests.

Researchers led by Satoshi Ide, Suguru Yabe and Yoshiyuki Tanaka, all from the University of Tokyo, found that tides—which arise from the gravitational interaction between the Earth and the Moon—can cause changes that may trigger earthquakes.

Particularly large earthquakes, including the 2004 Magnitude 9.1–9.3 Indian Ocean earthquake, the Magnitude 8.8 Maule earthquake which hit Chile in 2010 and the 2011 Magnitude 9.0 Tohoku-Oki earthquake in Japan, tend to occur near to a time of seizable tidal stress, which is often triggered by full or new moons.

When there is maximum tidal stress, the “probability of a tiny rock failure expanding to a gigantic rupture increases,” the study states.

There was no clear correlation found between tidal stress and small earthquakes.

Maybe one of the reasons for the Greece quake?

What time did you see a total eclipse?  I was watching the moon from 11:55 to 12:20, and there was no total eclipse then. (Charlotte, NC)

Re. the total lunar eclipse:  apparently I was wrong in saying that it did not hapen here.  I was expecting a complete black-out of the moon, as in normal total eclipses, but that was not what was expected this time.  Sunday night I could not quickly find a relevant Internet site, but last night I found one that showed the total eclipse as being a red moon, not black.  The video "Blood Moon Live Event! Watch it With Us! UFO Watch 2019"  at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-HRq0WqI0E  shows the Moon going black, then red, and then black again.  I missed the black parts.

Jimfarmer I had started watching the eclipse about 10:25 PM and it had already started. I think it started about 10:15 PM. I am a little farther west of you...way farther south...
Normally I would have posted about it in advance but busy with stuff...

@ around 52:40 on Marfoogle News early this morning, a caller shared a film of what she assumes to be our moon spinning rapidly upon its own axis.  The film does begin with what appears to be a sliver of a moon before her camera zooms in.

A scientist from Russia's Space Research Institute has examined 50 year-old evidence from NASA and the European Space Agency that proves the moon is located well within the earth's atmosphere, and not just at the fringe of the exosphere but more in the middle of it.  Please see "Geocorona" in the image below.

Not unless something has really drastically changed. That is not likely...

The moon orbits the Earth once every 27.322 days. It also takes approximately 27 days for the moon to rotate once on its axis. As a result, the moon does not seem to be spinning but appears to observers from Earth to be keeping almost perfectly still. Scientists call this synchronous rotation.Nov 14, 2017

Strange things about the moon lately:

1. It's no longer consistently in orbital phase-lock with the earth, having stayed in the same spot for several hours earlier this week, per WSO:

2. It's actively quaking right now, suggesting tectonic plates in motion, caused by...?

TODAY - Sunday, July 21, 2019
The Moon today is in a Waning Gibbous Phase. This is the first phase after the Full Moon occurs. It lasts roughly 7 days with the Moon's illumination growing smaller each day until the Moon becomes a Last Quarter Moon with a illumination of 50%.

THE FULL HUNTER'S MOON:
This weekend's full Moon has a special name: The Hunter's Moon. Like the Harvest Moon of September, this full moon rises soon after sunset, adding extra hours of light to waning northern days. It gets its name from Native American hunters who once tracked their prey by autumn moonlight, stockpiling food for the winter ahead.

Does this mean that we've moved, or that it has moved?

In general,, the spacing between the Earth, Moon, and Sun has changed so that we on Earth are seeing a different portion of the illuminated side of the Moon.

Hold your two fists about 12 inches in front of you at eye level, with the right fist directly in front of you and the left arm half extended leftwards .  The left fist represents the Sun, the right fist represents the Moon, and your head is the Earth.  As the sun shines on the Moon, illuminating the half of it that faces the Sun, the Earth sees a vertical half-Moon (more or less).  That is, the left side of your right fist is illuminated, the right side of it is dark, and your eyes see half of the illuminated portion and half of the dark portion.

Now move your right fist upwards.  As your right fist moves upward, the illuminated portion of it that is visible from your head moves downwards on the surface of it.

Moving both fists upwards (or the head downwards) does not produce the same effect, exactly.

So, I deduce that the Moon has moved.
