Pretty much the same as from any direction you cross the Glowline - there is an area of uncertainty wherein the moon seems to rise from its outside position (fairly low above the Crater) to its inside position (high, on its place in Buserian's Frame, possibly the one defined by the Doom Conjunction).

Oh, and a change of phase effect, too. Which one exactly will be told in ILH2. Researching this effect repeatedly might be a rough-and-dirty way to get illuminated or just plain mad. (Discussing it on the digest might have the same effect...)

I think we ought to ask ourself what the Glowline really is. I have a fledgeling theory...
