Sideways Moon

The sky rotates around polaris, so every object in it will have rotated 180 degrees or so when going from the east horizon to the west horizon. Note though, that depending on the season, the moon will rise further north (in summer) or further south (in winter) and be in the sky different amounts of time, so the amount of rotation will vary by how long it is in the sky.
