tide time only. The second high tide time for that day is adjusted automatically based
on the first high tide time.

The left-right (east-west) appearance of the Moon depends on whether the Moon is
north of you (northerly view) or south of you (southerly view) as you view it.
You can use the procedure below to reverse the displayed Moon phase so it matches
the actual appearance of the Moon where you are located.
