yes, i think i first noticed this when the moon was full the night
of Audry's rescue, but then we had a half-moon the next night...

it bothered me a little too, but i can cope with the fact that
it would be prohibitive for them to have a whole library of
different shots of the moon in all it's phases just to keep
the continuity police happy.
