Itís nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge. I use the term New Moon in its classical sense of oneís first sighting of the Moon after its conjunction (Dark Moon) with the Sun. The first realistic opportunity will come with the less than two-day-old Moon after sunset on June 4.

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