The earth has been wobbling here in N. Cal.; actually it's been bouncing around pretty hard, almost knocked me right out of bed last Sunday.....

It's either your telescope (is it windy?) or turbulence in the atmosphere.

Since it's a holiday weekend, the wobbling effect may be due to what you've been drinking for this celebration.

seriously,,,, i lay flat on my back, and secure my head and stare at the moon... \Soon the moon starts moving around in a random turbulent manner..... Then if i concentrate it feels like the earth is wobbling ,,,,

Do you have an issue with holding a steady gaze? Perhaps this manifests itself only when the field is mostly dark, like the night sky. What about indoors at night, with all lights off, and you look at something like a lit LED on a piece of electronic gear, or your glowing clock's display? Does the same kind of wobble ensue?

If thin, barely visible clouds are present it could be due to their motion. I've seen that effect a number of times, it appeared at first that planets and stars were moving.

It makes it easier to walk a straight line after drinking heavily....

I remember back in the late 50's and early 60's when we started seeing man made satellites. Sometimes when waiting for it to pass overhead, you would think that a star was moving but it wasn't. I think that this is all in your mind.

Of course they're all moving.......mostly away from us, but some towards us......and to a select few, it's because we're the center of the universe, stuck on a stick and rotating......but then, I guess any place is as good as any......when there is no center to an endless universe.

I've seen things wobble before, but it's obviously my eye muscles. Sometimes I can't stare right at something at first, but have to look away and then look back. Then, when I've got it, my eyes may wobble a bit again. I guess there's a name for it, other than Old Age, that is. If the Earth were wobbling as you think, we'd be feeling it, or detecting it in some way---not just you, but everyone.
