View Full Version : July New Moon Spotting

Itís nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge. Sharp-eyed North Americans with clear skies might be able to spot the one-day-old Moon after sunset on Friday, July 13. It will be seen well to the lower right of Mercury and Venus. Others should have better luck during the following evening.

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 2007 JUL 15 at 21:10 CDT while the Moon was aged 1.6 days.

You are forgetting the solar eclipse.
Visible in Tasmania, Victoria and Antarctic coast opposite, as a partial one.
