2016-Jan-08, 04:52 AM
Itís nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge. Some North Americans may set personal records by sighting the one-day-old Moon by naked eye after sunset on January 10.

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 thirty hours on 2008 DEC 28 at 17:05 CST. Mercury and Venus can be seen above the Moon.
