   Tuesday evening the 29th, the very thin 3.2 day old waxing crescent Moon will be above the western horizon just after sunset local time. How clearly you see the crescent Moon depends on what your local horizon looks like, as well the amount of haze and or low clouds on the horizon along the horizon.

   Clouds thinned out a little this evening and I was able to catch the waxing crescent Moon through some thin clouds.
