Gravity at siphon time

Hi, I took the gravity this morning and got 1.010.  I transfered the wort
tonight to the carboy and I took the gravity of the remaining wort in the
primary bucket containing a bit of liquid with the deposit of the yeast and
the gravity of that liquid was 1.016.   Is it at all possible that the
gravity goes backward?

You'll read different specific gravities at different temperatures. The
wort will be "heavier" when cooler.

And if Daniel had posted that the temps were different, that would
mean something.  However, given that most folks don't let the temps
vary by more that 5 to 10 degrees, it makes no difference.  It
certainly wouldn't account for a difference in over .006 in SG.
