The Moon comes out of hiding.
At this time in eastern America it is about 36 hours “old” – that is, past its New Moon moment. It will still be extrenely thin – like a line of faint stars; much more likely to be glimpsed 24 hours later.
The year’s Young Moons are compared in that section of the Astronomical Calendar. In the winter months, the Moon’s outward path is at a low angle from the horizon, less favorable therefore than in the spring. That factor is somewhat offset, this December, by the Moon’s starting-height: when New, it passed well north of the Sun.
There is always much else that could be marked in a chart and can’t really be seen. Pluto and several comets and asteroids are present – but I deleted them because it would be absurd to show them. The stars of Sagittarius are shown merely to give an idea of where we are in the sky. As for Mercury, which is not just low to the horixon but below it: well, it happens to be at its southernmost point in the sky for the year.
