View Full Version : November New Moon Spotting

2012-Nov-10, 05:02 AM
Itís nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge, which becomes a little easier as we pull further away from the autumnal equinox. A few North Americans may sight the one-day-old Moon on November 14. More will have luck the following evening.

My article describing 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 2.1 days on 2011 OCT 28 at 18:18 CDT.

On Wednesday after sunset the Moon was lost in the Chicagoland red horizon muck. This evening from Arlington Heights, Illinois I took this photo of the two-day-old Moon on 2012 NOV 15 @ 17:06 CST.
