Tonight's Sky for May 19: Fatter Thin Moon

Yesterday night offered arguably what is the Holy Grail of naked eye astronomy: a true Young Moon under 24 hours old (last night's Moon was 22 hours past New). While tonight's Moon is not a challenge to see at all, it is still nonetheless quite aesthetic in appearance as it is still only 5% lit tonight. To see it, just head out about 30 minutes after sunset and look low in the West.
