View Full Version : Late April New Moon Spotting

2017-Apr-24, 04:11 PM
Itís nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge. For observers in the Americas, the Moon will be about 1.5 days old after sunset on April 27. Those with clear skies should be able to spot it.

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

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

Below is a photo that I shot from Arlington Heights, Illinois of the Moon aged 1.78 days on 2011 MAY 04 at 20:35 CDT.
