    Cool April New Moon Spotting - Danjon Limit April 21

    It’s nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge. Some North Americans may set personal records on April 21st when the Moon shortly after sunset will appear barely further from the Sun than the 7° Danjon limit.

    My detailed article previewing the waxing crescent Moon’s first appearance of the coming lunar month appears under the links for my preview graphics at www.CurtRenz.com/moon

    Photos and descriptions of the young Moon would be welcome additions to this thread. Please include your location, date, time and time zone.

    Below is a photo that I took from Arlington Heights, Illinois of the Moon aged 21:47 hrs and 12.1° from the Sun on 2007 MAR 19 at 19:30 CDT.
