October New Moon Spotting

Recommended Posts

It’s nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge. I use the term New Moon in its classical sense of one’s first sighting of the Moon after its monthly solar conjunction. Some sharp-eyed North Americans with clear skies might be able to spot the less than one-day-old Moon after sunset on Tuesday, October 9. 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 on 2011 OCT 28 at 18:18 CDT while it was aged 2.14 days.
