Don’t often look at the moon phase, so not sure how long this has been an issue, but it happened to catch my eye that the moon phase is currently (12-13-2010) showing “Waning Crescent” when it is actually a Waxing Crescent. This incorrect moon phase shows the same from both a Weatherbug and NWS reporting station. Using version 7.0.37.
I’m assuming you are using a Tucson, AZ weather station. For good measure, I checked a WeatherBug, Weather Underground and NWS weather station. All were showing waxing.
Can you attach a screenshot?
Sorry for delayed response. Just back from trip. Correct assumption on the Tucson weather station. Tried both WeatherBug and NWS stations. Screenshot attached.
[Is there a way to put an image directly in the body of the message?]
I’ve been checking this weather station on and off for the past couple of days – haven’t seen an incorrect moon phase yet. How often is the moon phase incorrect for you?
Constantly. Basically it’s stuck on “waning crescent”. Currently, it should show “Waxing Gibbous.” I also have WWL on a second PC, and it’s showing the identical information. The two PCs are essentially clones of each other running Win 7 64-bit PRO and WWL 7.0.37.
