Itís nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge. There may be an opportunity for North American observers to set personal records after sunset on Friday 2018 FEB 16 by sighting the one-day-old Moon.

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 on 2007 MAR 19 at 19:29 CDT while it was aged 21:46 hrs, a personal record.

Does this New Moon by itself cause Year of Dog?
