Since the moon was considerably further away from Venus last night, I assume that somewhere over Saudi Arabia to Australia that there was in fact a Muslim moon, with the Moon on the other side of Venus -- similar to the flag of Turkey. Am I correct in assuming that, and where did the Moon appear just below Venus?
I don't think the parallax was so extreme from one part of the world to another that the Moon would have been in such a shifted position from what's shown above. Slightly different, yes, but not so extreme.
We have been watching this every night. Last night the moon seemed much higher than the night before. Very cool.
