Yom Kippur Moons Comparison

Here is the image of the moon as I saw it on the eve of the 8th day of the 7th lunar month, on 09/27/2017 @ 7:53 PDT. Yes, the picture was taken during conjunction. 

As you can see, the moon is exactly half, which constitutes Yom Kippur Moed. There is simply no other way to interpret this. Yom Kippur is a moed and Genesis 1:14 states that Sun and Moon are for moedim (plural, meaning for all moedim). This is why Yom Kippur falls on the half-moon phase.

And this is the Yom Kippur Day moon, 09/28/2017 @6:27 PDT. As you can see, moon is still exactly half.

And this is the picture of the moon on the eve of traditional Yom Kippur, 09/29/2017 @ 7:53 PDT (yes, same time for comparison). 

As you can see, the moon is clearly more than half and therefore out of phase and therefore CAN'T constitute a Moed. There is no way to tell what day it is by just looking at this moon. We need moon phases to define moedim.

Now that you have seen both moons, please ask yourself, which one is obviously the correct one? Yes, the half-moon, because it is a phase and therefore a moed.

Also, ask yourself if we determine the new moon by the moon, and Passover and Sukkot fall on Full moon and 3rd quarter moon,  why not Yom Kippur. It is obvious. You have to be blind not to see what nature and, therefore, God is trying to communicate to you!

Please note that in the 7th month the phases fall exactly on the right days, so you can use the moon to determine the moedim as opposed to using calculated values to determine it as we do in the 1st month for example.
