A photograph of the newest possible moon,  APR 21 2008

A photograph of the newest possible moon, one that's only about 15 hours old.

Finding the Moon when its slim crescent is still less than about 24 hours past the New Moon phase requires careful timing and planning, a challenging project even for experienced observers. In this sighting, only about 0.8 percent of the Moon's disk appears illuminated.
