it is lovely when the cognitive and perceptual call each other into question,
we have two moons, southern and northern
during waxing period the moon push into full from two different directions.
this is a hemispherical celestial nuance that is in addition to the shift in relationship when you face the moon – that from the north hemisphere the moon moves from left to right, and in the south hemisphere from right to left, a condition you also perceive with the sun. but because the moon is a beautiful reflector the growing and shrinking shape of sunlight becomes another indicator that one is on the other side of the world.
beautiful moons, yet another meter of hemispherical relationships.
