Hereâ€™s a photo I took this evening from Arlington Heights, Illinois of the 1.9% illuminated waxing crescent Moon aged 32:46 hrs on 2009 MAR 27 at 19:52 CDT. That was 39 minutes after sunset and 56 minutes before moonset with the Moon at an altitude of 8.9Â° while the Sun was 8.2Â° beneath the horizon. The Moon was seen through a veil of thin clouds. It was taken with my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F717 at ISO 100, f/2.4 & 1.3 sec.
