View Full Version : January New Moon Spotting

2018-Jan-15, 05:18 PM
Itís nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge. There may be a chance for some sharp eyed North American observers to set personal records after sunset on Wednesday 2018 JAN 17, when the Moon will be aged not quite one day. Most others will be presented with a better opportunity the following evening.

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

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

Below is a photo that I shot from Arlington Heights, Illinois of the Moon aged 1.45 days beneath Mercury and Venus on 2008 DEC 28 at 17:05 CST.
