Lunar Temple

What is the Lunar Temple?
On February 16, 2007,  the first Shenkuu Lunar Festival was held. With this festival there was also the grand opening of the Lunar Temple.

In this temple a wise old Gnorbu lives, who observes the movement of the globes, and tracks them here on his chart in order to maintain the official lunar calendar for Shenkuu. The Gnorbu likes to play games, and will challenge you once a day to test your skills at accurately tracking the movement of moon Kreludor.

How to Play:
What are you supposed to do in this challenge the Gnorbu poses? The Gnorbu will draw both Kreludor and Neopia on his canvas. Based on these positions you will be able to calculate which phase of Kreludor would most likely be seen from Neopia. An example of the canvas is shown below:
Since this is a site feature that gives out neopoint rewards and prizes, you may not visit the Lunar Temple on your side accounts. For more information look at our side accounts guide.
Lunar Temple
You have come to visit the Shenkuu Lunar Temple where a wise old Gnorbu lives. He maintains the official lunar calendar for Shenkuu.

The wise Gnorbu says: "I carefully observe the movement of the globes and track them here on my chart. Do you think you have what it takes to accurately track the movement of Kreludor? I propose a challenge to test your skills."

This is just an example canvas, yours will most likely be different, and it will change daily as well.

You can choose 16 different phases for the moon Kreludor will look like from a viewpoint of Neopia. These are shown below:

Choosing the Correct Answer:
How on earth should you know what the moon looks like from Neopia? Science is so dazzling and complicated! Don't you worry; there is a very simple way to find the answer.

First of all, go to the page with the puzzle you need to do, you can do so by clicking here.

Now you need to view the source of the page with the actual puzzle on it. The first page you go to when you go to the temple is not the same as the puzzle page. So make sure before you view the source that you are on the right page, you need to view the source of the page that has the options to pick which moon you want. There are two ways of opening source, whichever one you use is up to you. You can either right click on the background of the page and choose View Source, or go to View in the menu, and then choose View Source.
Note: if this doesn't work for you, then it is suggested that you clear your temporary internet files and restart your computer.

Now that you are in the source screen of the page press CTRL + F on your keyboard (or Edit, Search in the menu), a search window will appear. In this window you should enter (you can copy and paste this):

Now you will get a line that looks like this:

The number behind the word Kreludor is the one you need, you can disregard all the other things. Now you should copy the value into the next field and press calculate:
