    Cool November New Moon Spotting

    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 monthly solar conjunction (Dark Moon). Sharp-eyed observers may attempt to spot the more than one-day-old Moon after sunset on November 27th, with bright Venus and Jupiter serving as guides.

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

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

    Well, I couldnít grab photos but did manage to see a thin crescent moon on Nov 27 at 6:15 pm US EST. As well as Jupiter and Venus.

    It helps weíre in Florida this week visiting family, and the area around here is flat with wide open spaces.

    Tonight was a lovely conjunction of the three with the moon perched just above Venus and Jupiter hanging lower and a smidgen further around in azimuth.

    My brother in law even called a short while ago to ask about the conjunction (although he didnít use that term).
