    Re: Moon meridian passage
    From: David Fleming

    A meridian transit shot of the sun was one of the most common sights along with morning and afternoon sunsights.  Far outnumbering any other body in nuber of sights.

    A moon meridian transit is possible but not every day.  A sight is only possible when you can see the horizon ie roughly between sunrise and sunset.  Only a fraction of days have moon MTs during daytime.  Those days offer sun MT sights.

    Full moon MT show a false horizon as the bright moonlight on the water does not extend to the horizon.

    Hence you don't hear much about moon MTs.
