Suddenly South
Aug 23, 2004

In my house the external walls are exactly oriented to North-South and the corner to East-West , so it is easy to make the comparisons of the position of the Sun and the Moon at the hours in which they would be at these degrees.

For both Italy and Japan, where the N Pole points more toward the Sun during the Earth Wobble, the Moon's orbit would sling low on the horizon. Expected to be 20° high, it is seen through the poarch railing, LOW.
