    I guess you assume that the story in the comic is taking place on the same day it is released? The Wizard of Id, like many comic strips, is achronological and is also set two millennia ago. There is no "wrong" phase of the moon, since the events could have occurred on any given day in any given year.

    It is the perceived time of day (just after sunset or just prior to sunrise) where the incorrect phase is drawn. And not only the Wizard but other cartoons as well frequently get the phase wrong.

    Ian (Who is a big fan of the Wizard, Dilbert, and several other comic strips - I occasionally use appropriate cartoons in presentations)

    Now, you have me a bit confused. The comic strip doesn't indicate which time of night it is, it is just dark.

    I don't recall which cartoon I referenced but can recall indication of the time such as the King of Id going to bed (evening) or a BBQ (evening) or people leaving a bar (evening).

    Talking of the moon there will be a total lunar eclipse late Monday (20th)/Early Tuesday(21st):
