Spot the razor thin crescent Moon

Sunday 2nd March 2014 – 18:00 / 6pm

Can you spot the razor thin crescent Moon?

Here’s how to find it?
Go out early to mark the spot where the Sun sets, set up your camera or binocular, and start watching no more than 15/20 minutes after sundown at 17:41 / 5.41pm. (Moon sets tonight at 19:39 / 7.39pm.)

Keep watching for another 25 minutes to catch your time of best visibility, which will depend on your location and the sky conditions. If you see the Moon with binocular or telescope, try with the naked eye.
