Thierry Legault is perhaps the world's foremost satellite astrophotographer, though he's usually focused on spacecraft like ISS, and previously captured some of the best views of the shuttle in orbit ever seen by an observer on the ground. This month, however, he focused on our natural satellite, the moon. He was able to detect and record the crescent at new moon on July 8th, when the moon was only about 0.00000068% full according to my calculations. Quite the amazing accomplishment.

I don't get how its difficult to point a telescope at the moon and look at the crescent, enlighten me..
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22138579


When the moon is only some four degrees from the sun you must be very careful to not accidentally point it at the sun and you must take precautions to block out stray light from the sun. That is why he made a mask to block out stray light and erected it on a ladder in front of the telescope, knowing exactly where the hole would have to be to allow the moon to be seen through it in the telescope. He also imaged in near infrared to further reduce the amount of skyglow. This was an incredibly thin and dim crescent very near the sun, no one has ever seen a moon this young before. Your calibration frames need to be perfect and your imaging equipment must have a very good signal to noise ratio.

Re: World Record for the Youngest Crescent Moon Ever Detected!
This HAS TO BE one of the Signs that God spoke of in Genesis when he said the Stars and the heavens will be for Signs and Seasons. The astrological positions tell us what is happening, when it's happening, and is amazing in calling our attention to a particular date or place wherein something is about to take place that was prophesied thousands of years ago...

The sighting of the new moon - when the moon first appears in the month and is but a sliver showing in the heavens - that event is used in the Hebrew Calendar to make the beginnings of a month. So we know where we are in terms of God's Calendar. The fact that this tiny crescent moon was both barely visible and a day or two early, tell us that something serious is about to happen. God is calling out to gain our attention. Watch the events of this world. We are nearing something very big in terms of the entire world.

I'm kind of wondering if he deliberately chose this particular month to poke the Muslims (obviously the dynamics of the moon's orbit also played a role, but he could have chosen to do it on any other occasion where the same dynamics were available)... from his page...

Nice try Astro.. But the photo in the link you posted - it's simply an indent on a blue napkin from a coffee mug. There is no such thing as a hundred-millionth of a moon.

Debunked.

You debunk Nibs, you debunk asteroids and meteors, yet you expect us to believe that a ring on a fucking party napkin is the moon???? LMFAAAAAAO! Prove it.
