February 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 conjunction with the Sun (Dark Moon). Some sharp-eyed North Americans might want to attempt spotting the one-day-old Moon after sunset on Tuesday, February 5. 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.

Wanted to try yesterday, but did birthday dinner for the wife and #2 son in law. So had to settle for a 2 day old 3%. 

And got a little lucky while photographing and fighting misquitos.
