The New Moon

Tonight my family saw the Crescent New Moon, which marks the beginning of the Ninth Month on the Biblical Calendar. It was seen on November 18th, at 6:00 P.M.

I took this picture of the moon- it turned out pretty bad but I did get one, nonetheless.
The photo below has been highly edited so that you should be able to see the sliver. It is a horrible picture, knowing that the Moon it depicts was quite stunning in real life. However, it does show that we did indeed see the moon tonight. :-)
Below: The Sunset seen just before the Moon came into vision from behind the clouds.
The light from the Sun reflected very prettily off of the Moon, before being completely hidden below the horizon.
