About 2 years ago at this time of year I caught the waning crescent on a Sunday morning. It is such a common sight, but rarely caught because folks are usually busy in the mornings. So, here is the sketch and a story at the blog (address below my signature). There is religious content.

Thanks Tom, Frank, and Peter. It's hard not to sketch when you see the crescent in the morning.
