the glowline and the phase of the moon viewed from above

It seems to me that people are taking a rather 2 dimensional view of the
glowline. Presumably you still encounter it if you are travelling 10 feet
below the surface or 10 feet above it, or even 100 feet above the surface.

Could the glowline be a side on view of a glowsurface (or glowmanifold
perhaps) which extends up into the middle air, enveloping lune. Given the

lunar goddess is forever battling the storm gods for control of the
middle air, the glowsurface would mark the boundary of her sphere of
influence.

You could conceivably send your lunar heros heroquesting to the lunar
surface to try and extend the glowsurface out towards the skydome.
Perhaps they could use the crimson bat to get there?

On a bit of a tangent, does it follow that the weather is better within
the glowline?
