Featured Moon Calendar
The Moon has the potential for moving the most through the northern and southern declinations. Some periods, the Moon will transit to extreme declinations known as Out of Bounds declinations, while other periods, the Moon will stay "safe and close" inbounds. Some fiscal analysts use the Moon's declination transit to track their financial investments. The declination of the Moon adds another dimension to the daily Moon transit. This chart uses GMT.
Switching the Site back to SSL
It has been a year since having to move the Moon Tracks site to the new server, new web host, et al. When that happened, I needed to rewrite some of the database scripts to work with the new system. Because of all the time invested at the time, I chose to revert from the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) [https:] pages to the non-secure [http:] partly because the site does not have a need for SSL in order to function effectively.
Some of your bookmarked pages may need to be updated after the switch to SSL. The only reason for the change is for Search Engine Optimization purposes since we don't store your data or do any e-commerce on the site.
Thank you for your patience as we transition to the SSL pages.
Calculations for Time Zones
Happy Lunar New Moon! With this new moon new year comes a new page on Moon Tracks. For years now, we have navigated through hundreds of emails about time zone calculations. In an effort to respond to most of these types of questions that will undoubtedly be emailed in the future, we compiled a page with resources to assist with the complex task of adjusting for time.
The Time Zones page will hopefully, bring some clarity to how to adjust GMT/UTC times to reflect the event in your time zone.
The Time Zones page will not provide much assistance regarding the calendars that use PST. The PST pages are literally designed for me and my personal usage. I share them with you because they are also very popular and useful resources for a lot of people. There are other resources on the site that do adjust and calculate the same information based on time zones.
The Time Zones link has been added to the menu under Etcetera in the left hand column.
I know you are upset about the changes.
There were three pages impacted by the loss of one of our lunar data resources. I know you want things back the way they were. I can't guarantee that I can accomplish that.
I started rewriting the scripts that pull in the information based on the new resource last summer. Add insult to injury, I started experiencing health problems. I contemplated pulling the pages off the site, all together. But they are really popular pages that a lot of you depend on.
The rewrites are complete, and some of you are upset with the new layouts.
First of all, I am sorry. I comprehend that you liked the old formats. If I can find a way to restore the original formats on the pages, I will. No excuses here. Just the fact that I have attempted to salvage the pages to the best of my ability and that I have not been able to do a better job during the transition. For that, I am truly sorry!
Happy New Year 2019
We made it through the rest of the year without any more server hiccups. Yay!
If you notice any pages that are not functioning or were not updated, please let us know. Read the contact page to learn how to contact us. If you do not use the correct setup in emailing us, we may never receive your message.
When contacting us, be sure to include the URL address, and not just the name of the page. Several pages have similar names. The URL let's us know exactly which page is not working.
One of the pages is now pulling data from a different server, causing us to change the layout, and we are working to realign the format so that it is better for viewing. For now, please bear with us as we work on the layout until we can get it right.
On that note, we wish everyone a great 2019!
Well, we're back! If you encounter an insecure error it is because we no longer have the SSL Certificate but the site does not have anything malicious on it, but some browsers may think that it does. Keep Reading to Learn More!
A hiccup with the webhosting service that we were on messed with the DNS resolution and then the Techs who were probably swamped with a huge volume of customers needing help at the same time....
In the process, we learned that the webhosting company had been acquired by a large organization that basically runs their acquisitions into the ground.
We picked up, lock, stock and barrel. and moved to a new webhosting service that is NOT owned by the EIG brand. Will leave it at that.
The https is not currently working. We need to purchase a new SSL Certificate as we had to abandon it with the previous service.
We hope to have the SSL back up within the next two weeks.
You are always welcome to check on our status with our facebook page moon.tracks.time
Thank you for your patience.
