View Full Version : October New Moon Spotting

2015-Oct-12, 04:12 PM
It’s nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge. Due to the autumn celestial geometry, North Americans may have a tough time sighting the one-day-old Moon during the early evening of October 13. Most folks should have better luck the next day.

My preview graphics and more detailed article can be found at www.CurtRenz.com/moon.html

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

Below is a photo that I shot from Arlington Heights, Illinois of the Moon aged two days on 2011 OCT 28 at 18:18 CDT.
