    Re: Moon transit question from Kolkata

    I interpreted the question differently.  Not so much as the definitions of upper and lower transits, but why is the lower transit listed for the moon and not for the sun?  In high latitudes the sun also ha both upper an lower meridian passages.  What is so special about the moon's lower meridian passage?

    Imagine you are near the north pole and the moon is in North declination. Its daily motion will be circumpolar and you will have two meridian transits, one to the south and one to the north.
