    Re: FW: The N )VA Crescent from a different angle
    From: Hewitt Schlereth

    It seems to me the thing about watching the sun from the North Pole is
    its altitude is the same as its declination. That is, on the say of
    the summer solstice the sun's altitude would be 23.45�. It would
    circle the horizon at that altitude, gradually declining day by day
    till the equinox when its altitude would be 0�. That would be sunset.
    (Obviously, I'm ignoring refraction).
    
    The moon being so large and the reflection in the water (ice?)
    indicate it's a composite, but it is beautiful.
