33 hour 57 minute old Moon



My wife and I were taking pictures of the sunset over the Catskills last December 28th at about 5:00pm and as the colors faded I noticed a very thin white slice of light hanging on the horizon. It was the new moon, new at 7:22 am EST on Saturday morning December 27th. So at 5:19 PM on Sunday, when this picture was taken, the moon was 33 hours, 57 minutes old.
Don't know if this is a record or not.. but it's the newest moon I think I've ever seen. In this photo it's just right of the last tree near the center of the field.
