    N.A. + Moon phase

    Bill,
    I see now I didn't understand your question fully.
    On the part of the time referance of the lighten phase..........I don't
    know.I never thought about it untill now.I would be interested to learn what
    the referance is though.
    I'm also not sure about the last sentence in your post.
    The times for moonrise,moonset for a given latitude is extrapolated from the
    columns directly above the phase diagrams and Table II, page xxxii of the
    almanac.But you know that already.
    So,I'm not grasping what you mean by "observer position" as reguards to the
    moon phases/time referance.If the Moon's visible one would see it in the
    phase stated no matter where one's position on earth is?
