April 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 (Dark Moon). Sharp-eyed observers may attempt to spot the one-day-old Moon after sunset on April 23rd.

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

Tonight looks pretty tough, 2 degrees altitude at sunset, and 0.5% illuminated. Tomorrow night much more doable I think, will give it a go anyway.

Very lovely sight here too. Both naked eye and through the faithful Telementor. Earthshine fab once it got dark enough to show.
