Itís nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge. I use the term New Moon in its classical sense of oneís first sighting of the Moon after its conjunction (Dark Moon) with the Sun. Some sharp-eyed folks might want to attempt spotting the one-day-old Moon after sunset on Thursday, March 7. Other observers 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.
