I too have found this a curious phenomenon and can only say that i have seen a "tilted" moon in the past but never so "tilted" and am finding it difficult to understand the mechanics of it.!
Seasonal tilt ? NO unless the moon is semi blocked by earth from sun..!?
axial shift and tilt? more likely as not only moon is in an odd cycle and the stars are not where i am used to them appearing from my vantage point ..!??
any how i truly would love some one to do a 3d model and demonstrate this ..!!!
You do realise that this thread is over a year old ??

and it has nothing to do with the moon being "semi-blocked from the sun bythe earth"
in that case there would be a partial eclipse!!
