Moon - 22.1.2023 at 18.20 - 22.1.2023 at 18.30 Sainte-Anne, Guadeloupe Observation number 111533

Visibility IV / V


Probably the youngest moon I've seen (about 21 hours). I was filming a timelapse of the Earth's shadow and I ended up turning my phone in the other direction. At first I could only see Venus, until the young moon came into view after the sky darkened a little more. To the right of Venus is faintly Saturn. Coincidentally, the shooting moment was the closest encounter between Venus and Saturn, I later learned.
