Moon over Pavis

A short reminiscence on how the question arose again:

The Cover of SiP shows representatives of Pavis meeting the Coders who apparently disembark on top of the Pavis Temple in New Pavis.

Well, look at the aerial view of New Pavis (back cover of RoC), and compare it with the Rubble map. You'll find that the SIP cover looks almost in the same direction as the aerial view. This direction is approximately east.

Thus, whether the moon is visible from Pavis (as I think it is) or not, it couldn't possibly visible on the SiP cover. Nor on any other of the Renaissance covers (SC looks northeast, RoC southeast). From Pavis, the Moon would be visible above the Nine Good Giant Mountains, if viewed from before the guild hall, above Riverside.
