Moon position information??

Unread postby mheichelbech » Thu Mar 05, 2015 9:55 am

How do you tell what the moon's position is relative to your area besides looking in the sky? I know who to look up what part of the moon is visible, i.e., quarter, half, full, etc. but I am not able to cipher what the position is at any given time of day.

I must be missing it. I could only see that it said full moon, nothing about its position in the sky at a given time.

Look at the history for today it will tell you when the moon rises and sets. Calculate half way between the rise and set then you have moon overhead. Hope this helps.Also it tells you the exact weather in 15 minute intervals. Wind direction and speed, barometric pressure, temp etc.
