Itís nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge, which presents great difficulty when approaching the time of the autumnal equinox. Are you up to it? A few North Americans may sight the 2.5-day-old Moon on August 19. More should be able to see spot it on August 20.

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 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 2.5 days on 2007 SEP 13 at 19:37 CDT.
