Aren't the sun, earth, & moon in the same plane? So why don't the sun & moon rise at the same location? Is irt because of the earth's axial tilt?
Can someone suggest key words for google to expand on the explanation?

looking at the photographers ephemeris it looks like the moon rises in the same general pattern depending on the phase of it...but the sunlocation is moving depending on the season...there are times when they line up...

Thanks to both of you. I found this on How Earth Moves (external link) video at about 21:36 that seems to explain it. Or maybe not.
I measured the angle between sun/moon rise this morning & it was about 60-degrees. That just seemed a bit extreme to me, & I'd never noticed it before. Again, thanks.

If the sun and moon were in the exact same plane, we'd have an eclipse every thirty days.

Wouldn't that be fun! ; )
Still, 60-degrees seems like a LOT of offset to me.
