Itís nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge. Some sharp-eyed North Americans with clear skies might be able to spot the less than one-day-old Moon after sunset on Tuesday, October 9. Others should have better luck during the following evening.

My preview graphics and more detailed article can be found at https://www.CurtRenz.com/moon.html

Photos and descriptions of the young crescent Moon this month would be welcome additions to this thread.

Below is a photo that I shot from Arlington Heights, Illinois of the Moon on 2011 OCT 28 at 18:18 CDT while it was aged 2.14 days.
