Lunation 196: The 1-Day-Old Moon
The Thinnest Possible Crescent Moon?
Good friend Larry H. joined me at the Crab Shack to greet the kind'a Young Moon--only 1
day and 4.5 hours "old"--as it set about an hour after the Sun.
Beautiful, mostly-clear evening (some clouds 'round the horizon), and
quite warm for mid-November. This is the beginning of Lunation 196, and
I'm looking forward (when weather allows) to recording the advancing
phases of Luna as we head once more toward Full.
