It was the moon’s ill tim-ing that robbed me of perfection.” He scowled unforgivingly at the yellow wedge above them. Then he stared ahead. “There!” The Sicilian pointed. “The Cliffs of Insanity.”
I would like to know what does "the yellow wedge above them" mean. Does "yellow wedge" mean "moon"? but is moon in the shape of wedge? Thanks.
