DescriptionThe end of each Saros cycle (every 18 yrs) allows for a unique opportunity to observe the rising moon exhibit the greatest possible variation in azimuth at moonrise and which translates to a maximum declination of 28.60° above AND below the ecliptic during the SAME synodic month. It is my understanding that this is the ONLY photo in existence documenting this phenomenon.
