New Moon , Waxing Crescent Moon

The New Moon was on first of September.
On second of September I was hunting without success the crescent of the New Moon , apparently passing close to Venus and Jupiter.
All I was able to see with naked eyes and  with binocular was Venus.


I was lucky on 2-nd of September when the crescent of the two days old Moon was visible to the East of Venus.








On 4-th of September the Moon passed at 1.5 degrees North of Spica.
Due to thin clouds , what I was able to see was the narrow crescent of the 2.92 days old Waxing Crescent Moon.





However , the Moon is such a beautiful celestial body !
No other wanderer of the sky is creating such marvelous landscapes!
