Quote:Just got it a second ago. 530PM Eastern Time.
Fraction of the moon: 0.026438039906645
Illumination of the moon disk: 1 %

Might be a record for me, but I don't keep track. Only managed to spot it in the binocs, definitely not naked eye visible yet(still too bright outside) and it will be below the tree line before it is. Pretty cool to see that super thin sliver.
Quote:Honestly I'm not positive what the "fraction of the moon" value is. I just copied it off the website in case someone found it to be a useful value lol. I can't seem to find an explanation on the website as to what it is either. The illumination percentage seems to just be a truncated value.
