2012-May-18, 07:01 PM
Itís nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge. Many will first sight it on May 21. On May 22 the two-day-old Moon will occult Zeta Tauri for observers in the southern plains of the USA.

My detailed article previewing the waxing crescent Moonís first appearance of the coming lunar month appears under the links for my preview graphics at www.CurtRenz.com/moon

Photos and descriptions of the young Moon or the Zeta Tauri occultation 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 30:43 hrs above Mercury on 2007 MAY 17 at 21:10 CDT.
