[SOLVED] Astro Binding: Moonphase suddenly jumps to wrong phase WANING_GIBBOUS instead WAXING_GIBBOUS?

Hi all,

I am on OH 2.5-snap build #1484 and found that the moon phase switched at least one day too early and it switched from WAXING_GIBBOUS directly to WANING_GIBBOUS which is absurd because these phases are never consecutive??? It should at least switch to FULL being the next phase in line …

Here is the “grep” on GIBBOUS from the events.log … It always sets the right moon phase at system start from NULL to WANING_GIBBOUS but only at midnight of the 20th January 2019 (last night) it sets (during run time - no restart!!!) the value from WAXING_GIBBOUS to WANING_GIBBOUS and now it keeps this wrong value?

2019-01-18 22:57:32.800 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - Moon_Phase changed from NULL to WAXING_GIBBOUS
2019-01-19 06:48:52.829 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - Moon_Phase changed from NULL to WAXING_GIBBOUS
2019-01-19 11:45:47.242 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - Moon_Phase changed from NULL to WAXING_GIBBOUS
2019-01-19 18:26:49.496 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - Moon_Phase changed from NULL to WAXING_GIBBOUS
2019-01-20 00:00:30.013 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - Moon_Phase changed from WAXING_GIBBOUS to WANING_GIBBOUS
2019-01-20 06:48:49.742 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - Moon_Phase changed from NULL to WANING_GIBBOUS

Find below my astro binding config files:


astro:sun:home [ geolocation="49.xxx,8.xxx,100", interval=600 ]
astro:moon:home [ geolocation="49.xxx,8.xxx,100", interval=600 ]


String      Moon_Phase           "Mondphase [MAP(astro.map):%s]"                      (gAstro) {channel="astro:moon:home:phase#name"}

Any idea what went wrong here?


There was an eclipse last night?

Yes, it was!

And today is full moon!


Please also check your item, now. My item is telling me now: “full moon”.

I also had a change from WAXING_GIBBOUS to WANING_GIBBOUS, yesterday.
Yesterday I wondered why I missed the full moon. (I usually become a werewolf :smiley: :smiley: )


Hello Celaono1,

yes today it switched back to Full Moon. Seems that it was only a hick-up :slight_smile: !
I also thought that I was healed with no more driveling, peeing at trees and biting virgins all the night :wolf: … but it seems that my hope was in vain :rofl:

I guess we’ll never find out what happened. I am happy that I was not alone with this …

Good luck with your destiny, I live with mine :deciduous_tree: :wolf: :woman:
