Wondering if our view of the moon does change with the time of year I did a little searching
Do the seasons affect where the moon rises and sets?
How does the direction of the moonrise change?
"The Moonís pattern is close to that of the Sunís. It orbits the Earth on a plane that is approximately 5.1 degrees offset from the orbital plane of the Earth around the Sun. This causes the position of the moonrise and Moonset to vary up to 28.6 degrees north or south (thatís 23.5+5.1 degrees)."
Hmmm, going to have to let that sit for a bit before I can start running a mental model of it.
I went to Night Sky and did a screen shot of where the young moon sets each month of the year.
This is the Mexico City sky
