2011-Nov-22, 03:57 AM
Itís nearly time for the monthly New Moon spotting challenge. My detailed article previewing the waxing crescent Moonís first appearance of the coming lunar month appears under the links for my related graphics at www.CurtRenz.com/moon

Photos and descriptions of the young Moon would be welcome additions to this thread. Please include your location, date, time and time zone.

Below is a photo that I took from Arlington Heights, Illinois of the Moon aged 1.5 days on 2008 DEC 28 at 18:05 CST. It includes Mercury near the center and Venus at the top. All three will be positioned similarly after sunset on 2011 NOV 25, although the spotting will be tougher. On NOV 26 the Moon will appear between Mercury and Venus.
