Waning Crescent Moon Near Mercury

   Thursday morning September 29th the 28-day old and very thin waning crescent Moon will be a few degrees below the innermost planet Mercury. New Moon is a few minutes past midnight Friday, 0:11 UT Saturday, so if you are able to see the Moon it will be close to the record for seeing the Moon close to new Moon phase.
