Phase of the moon according to local scripts and Astro::MoonPhase
The date is Sunday the 23rd. April 2017 and the time is 15:50:11.
There were 1,492,977,011 seconds since 01-Jan-1970.
The local scripts are a translation of the basic code from a book called
Celestial Basic by Eric Burgess 1985. The Perl package Astro::MoonPhase
which calculates the positions of the sun and
the moon as seen from the earth are taken from the book Practical Astronomy
by Peter Duffett-Smith 1981.

This photograph of the moon is taken from Wikipedia.
The crater in the lower left is Tycho named after the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe
(14 December 1546 - 24 October 1601).
It is a young crater, only about 108 million years old, and so the dinosaurs must have seen the impact.
