Hi,

For my college astronomy course we're required to turn in five moon observational drawings tomorrow, and i got all but one. So i'm gonna cheat on just this one (i know, tisk tisk). So i decided to draw the harvest moon for oct 4 2009. Well the problem is I need to know what it's altitude and direction was from midwest america (Colorado to be exact). But looking on the web i can't seem to find any website that lists this approximate info for north america.

Can anyone help me out? many thanks :thumbup:

It's not a website but I'd use Stellarium. Easy to use.

Thanks, exactly what I was looking for! Only problem is i forgot to change my location before writing it down on my paper, but i set date and time correctly lol. Oh well that's what you get when you're in a hurry. :lol:
