I couldn't do that either.  Checking the beacon box, the beacon showed the moon was on the opposite side of the Earth, directly underneath me.  I couldn't get it to come up to the horizon.

I kept fiddling with the control and then, suddenly there it was, up in the night sky.  I've no idea how I did it, but it's worth persevering.  One thing I did do was to make sure the stars were visible.  By the way, the moonlight effect, when you manage to set it up, is great, with shadows.

Think of the round section of the control as though it were a sphere, and the spot on the ball is the moon's position on the surface of that sphere.  

In order to rotate that spot so that it is on the "up" side of the sphere you can use either the arrow keys to rotate it until it comes around, or you can press control and drag which will spin the ball so that the moon will rise above the horizon.
