It’s nearly time for my monthly New Moon spotting challenge. A few North Americans may sight the 1.5-day-old Moon on June 20. More should be able to see it on June 21. Mercury will serve as a guide.
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 48:03 hrs seen above fireworks on 2008 JUL 04 at 21:22 CDT.
