It’s nearly time for the monthly New Moon spotting challenge. My detailed article previewing the waxing crescent Moon’s first appearance of the coming lunar month appears under the links for my related 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 I took from Arlington Heights, Illinois of the Moon aged 2.5 days on 2007 SEP 13 at 19:36 CDT. That Moon was positioned similarly to what you might expect to see on 2011 OCT 28.
