The moon of 1419 Afteryule 13 and the West-gate of Moria

The http://shire-reckoning.com/moon.html article and the Reader's Companion address the issue with the waning (nearly 3rd-quarter) moon shining on the West-gate before midnight on Afteryule 13: last night's moon didn't even rise until nearly midnight, and it didn't pass its peak in the southern sky until a couple of hours before before dawn. So it could not shine directly on the door (which is surrounded by westward-facing cliffs) until it moved into the western skies between midnight and dawn.
